Fluids from Latvian new wave artists: cutting-edge videos and installations.
at M’ATUVU Creative Shopwindow — Lakensestraat 113, rue de Laeken 1000
OPENING: 5/09 – 20:00
Voldemārs Johansons - Aero Torrents (Installation, 2007)
The installation is a waveform sculpture projected on the surface of water by sonic vibration. As a commentary on the process of climate change, the wave patterns are derived from meteorological data acquired during extreme storms of recent years in Europe. The combination of three materials: air, water and sound simulate a chaotic ecosystem where recorded wind intensity and direction patterns are transferred by waves of sound.
Maija Kurševa – My Friday (Installation, video 2008)
Waves rise with a light tinkle. Initially small, they get bigger. Bring up to ceiling where the head is crashed against glass. In the morning it is clear there has been a storm in the room, as bottles with messages are silted by the feet.
Linards Kulless (Installation, 2008)
He has created this work specially for this occasion. It’s a decorative installation that conceptually interprets various connotations which are encoded in the name of this exhibition — Fluid States.
