  • https://www.facebook.com/artstationdubulti

From Wednesday, July 13th, the project "Nowisms" will start in Art Station Dubulti. Nine artists will work according to the principle of presence and production. One by one, two by two or more, they will be present in the space and define their ideas. During their presence and production time the young artists will implement their work. At least twice a day the artists will do the text readings or conversations for the live streaming. The presentation of the created works will be held in August 26. All the works will be in an unusual relationship with a traditional exhibition format - they will layer, replace, apply, supplement, empathize, mimicry, love, interpret or continue Thomas Hirshhorn's project "ART=SHELTER" which is on view from April 21st. "Nowisms" is an experimental form that conceptualizes the relation. (How to Improve the World? To get in RELATION with the world! - Thomas Hirschhorn). At the same time, "Nowisms" is a form of hope and despair, that comes from living next to the terrible war in Ukraine. Growing out of "ART=SHELTER" initiated by the artist Thomas Hirschhorn, "Nowisms" have its connection with support for Ukraine and unconditional love for art. The project stands for technical and symbolic relations with the world. Visitors will be able to see how young artists do their work in close distance, as well as implement creative expression in the space as before.

The full name of the project is "Nowisms and talks about the form". The participating artists are Kristiāns Iesalnieks, Andris Ratnieks (dj Plastix), Liene Lintere, ENVIJA, Kintija Avena, Veronika Simoņenkova, Sāra Marija Nudiņa, Elīna Salnāja and Artūrs Bogdanovs. Working under the direction of Thomas Hirschhorn in the building process of "ART=SHELTER", they became a "form" - a group that could cooperate with the precarious structure and accept each other's reality. They will implement their ideas in various materials - poetry, performance, sound, process, painting, design, sculpture, installation, photography, as well as all those "anonymous" materials that can be found here and now. At "Nowisms", they will read Thomas Hirschhorn's text "Tribute to Form" every day and comment on it live in the morning (at 10 a.m.). The text is a manifest for form, and the purpose of "Nowisms" is to re-authorize it or to read it, imagining it as one's own or identifying with the writer. A similar process will take place in the exhibition hall - young artists will create their own form, largely influenced by "ART=SHELTER". The afternoon live broadcast (at 2 p.m.) will be like a diary of what was done, what was understood and what was interesting. Broadcasting from a static camera in the exhibition space will continue throughout the day. The curator's observations of the process will be published on FB. The curator of the "Nowisms" project and idea is Inga Šteimane, head of the Art Station Dubulti.


The project "Nowisms and talks about the form" takes place at Art Station Dubulti from July 13 to September 25 every day from 9.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Entrance is free. Presentation of the project "Nowisms and talks about the form" will be held in August 26 at 5 p.m. Excursions led by the curator : on July 17 at 4 p.m., on August 28 at at 4 p.m., on September 3 at at 4 p.m. The Art Station Dubulti program is supported by the Jūrmala Municipality and the State Culture Capital Fund.
