The premises of the Jurmala Culture Centre offer possibilities to visit varied events – concerts, dance performance, art exhibitions, here there is also Jurmala cinema.
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.
