With works by Ieva Epnere

Within the framework of “The Fingers of the Air”, Ieva Epnere presents on the ground floor of the daadgalerie an installation comprising fragments of memory in the form of images, texts and sounds.

Image projections collected over the years appear alongside short poems by Agnese Krivade together with the recording of a solo piece for double bass written especially for the exhibition by composer Evija Skuķe and played by Gunārs Upatnieks. The interplay of texts, images and music illustrates the power and volatility of memories, which the artist describes as constant source of inspiration and strength, especially in times of internal and external crises.

Ieva Epnere (born 1977 in Latvia) lives and works between Riga and Berlin where she is a current fellow of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. She creates photographs, video works and films, where personal, private stories are the starting point for artistic reflections on identity, traditions and rituals.
