2nd International Sea-themed Biennale “Marīna 2019”. Exhibition "13 meters per second". Opening

This exhibition has three participants – painter Jānis Jēkabsons, sculptor Ivars Miķelsons and graphic artist, Professor of Art Academy of Latvia Jānis Murovskis. The authors know each other well - from 1981 to 1986 they studied together at Art Academy of Latvia. Together they attended plein airs, and once compulsory kolkhoz works, as well as visited each other’s exhibitions for interest in colleagues’ creative work. After studies, they have chosen different artistic paths. Exhibition’s “13 meters per second” name and ideological platform were created together, but further each of them follows their own wind. Sculptor Ivars Miķelsons as a theme for his work has chosen TAILWIND, graphic artist Jānis Murovskis selected CROSSWIND, but painter Jānis Jēkabsons explores SUDDEN WIND. Sculptor Ivars Miķelsons on his chosen TAILWIND: - It’s a movement, a journey, a motion... For us, the inhabitants of Latvia, it has also become a non-return trip. Probably old saying “Have a good tailwind” has lost its meaning... Painter Jānis Jēkabsons thinks similarily: - We never know what the SUDDEN WIND will bring. Neither in nature nor in life in general. But maybe we’re looking at it from a distance and it doesn’t affect us at all. The name of the exhibition “13 meters per second” has a deeper meaning than just a wind speed measurement. Find out more about it at the exhibition.

2nd International Sea-themed Biennale “Marīna 2019”. Exhibition "National treasure. Contemporary space. Līvija Pavlovska. Gedimins Kotello". Opening

  • Friday, 19.July
  • Zigfrīda Meierovica prospekts 3
  • https://www.facebook.com/MarinaBiennale/

The exhibition spotlights significant artists of Latvia’s recent past. Both stars of the exhibition - one in the interior field, the other in the field of animation - formed the modern space of their era in the 70s and 80s with their images. During the national awakening the populist currents often defined the ambitions of modernists of the recent past as soviet and it stopped their development. The works of Līvija Pavlovska and Gedimins Kotello at the exhibition “Contemporary space” will remind of the aspects of modern art in the Soviet era. Līvija Pavlovska lives and works in Jūrmala, but Gedimins Kotello was born and spent his boyhood summers in Jūrmala, thus, the exhibition makes topical the role of the Art Station Dubulti in the local context, as well as the Dubulti station itself is “a living” context for the exhibition. Līvija Brigita Pavlovska (1939) is an interior artist, the main artist of Jūrmala city in the 1980s. Her individual performance still fascinates as seen in the modernist décor of the interior of the Riga Technical University, as well as many project pictures in the artist’s archives. The artist graduated from the Interior and Equipment Department of the Art Academy of Latvia in 1970. The exposition will show the projects’ reconstructions and original works. Gedimins Kotello (1946) studied at the Janis Rozentāls Riga Art Secondary School, then at the Art Academy of Latvia, graduating in 1970 as a painter. Between 1975 and 1991 he worked as an animated film artist at Riga Film Studio (mainly in films directed by Arnolds Burovs). The films with Gedimins Kotello created puppets are prize winners of Lielais Kristaps and ex. USSR film festivals. The exhibition will feature films with puppets created and animated by Gediminas Kotello, as well as original works by the artist. Curator Inga Šteimane.

Latvian painting can be proud of the outstanding representatives of the marine genre.

The classic interpretation of the marine genre will be offered by Valdis Kalnroze. Arvīds Egle painting has a unique composition of the light and shadows, in which he probably captured himself. The outstanding painter Jānis Pauļuks will prove himself as a vital landscapist who plays not only with shining colour tones, but also with painting techniques. The work of Lidija Auza “Storm”, which coincides with the subtitle of this year’s Biennale “Marīna 2019”, is characterized by the rhythm, brightness, and thick texture. Indulis Zariņš consistent but very dynamic portrait of Leo Svemps on the seaside background creates a sense of contrast and saturation typical of tonal painting.

  • 18.July - 1.September
  • Omnibusa iela 19
  • https://www.facebook.com/MarinaBiennale/

The art gallery “Inner Light” has a very special place in Jūrmala art life and is also a unique tourist attraction. The art gallery was built based on the project by the owner and painter Vitālijs Jermolajevs. Artist successfully combined the values of traditional painting with his new “fluorescent” technique - painter has a patented technique and composition of fluorescent colours. Vitālijs Jermolajevs light painting is an experimental original technique that reveals to the viewer the inner world of the artist - the “inner light” - by a fluorescent colour game. Every painting created by artist hides a mystery of light - in a special lightning art works begin to glow, and the viewer can see another, hidden image. In some works these so-called “day” and “night” effects are similar, in others quite different. The gradual transition from day to night painting offers the viewer a huge variety of image transformations. Paintings of Vitālijs Jermolajevs arouse associations that bridge consciousness with the subconsciousness. Kade Clemensen (USA), Arina Jermolajeva (Latvia), and group EzotericOM (Estonia) also participate in the exhibition. During the Biennale Vitālijs Jermolajevs unique paintings will reveal the story of the changing energy of the sea in different seasons.

You get lost during the holiday at the sea and scientists’ warning about the sea pollution seems incredible. There is a 70 thousand square kilometres of the dead zones in the Baltic sea, where every living thing dies. They are caused by human activity, releasing into the sea nitrogen, phosphorus and pharmaceuticals. The exhibition “The sea of memories” draws attention to the pollution of the Baltic sea. It is a mournful and grim analogy based story about the fragile life of a man and the sea. Eva Saukāne video installation with Aivars Vegners 90s amateur video fragments, ballet “Crow” (Vārna) video projections with Reinis Sējāns composed music and starring Elza Leimane will be simultaneously projected on a variety of screens of different sizes, mixing the past, the present and the unfulfilled future.

Woman and society, Aspazija and love, an eternally young lyrical voice - none of her life areas show mediocrity and reconciliation, always striving for growth, perfection, depth, clarity, and purity of feelings. Sometimes as a storm breaking the road through stagnant beliefs to change the moral tone of society, fighting for every woman’s right of self-determination.

After the JSC's bankruptcy, the Jurmala City Council purchased the fishing museum's building and collection in 2002. From January 1st, 2003, it operates as a branch of the Museum of Jurmala - the Jurmala open-air museum, which is an important part of the cultural history of Jurmala and Latvia. The Jurmala Open Air Museum serves the public - its aim is to promote and explore the oldest occupation of Jurmala's population - the development of fishery in Jurmala and its immediate vicinity, as well as to preserve the fishing-related ethnographic buildings and the collection of historical evidence for future generations in the museum.
