Izstāde "Kopā un atsevišķi"


No 1. februāra līdz 27. martam ISSP Galerijā būs skatāma daudzdzīvokļu namiem veltīta izstāde “Kopā un atsevišķi”. Tā piedāvās iepazīties ar daļu no ekspozīcijas “Together and Apart”, kas 2018. gadā pārstāvēja Latviju Venēcijas arhitektūras biennālē. Izstādi papildinās jauna grāmata par daudzdzīvokļu namu arhitektūru Latvijas ekonomiskajā, politiskajā un sociālajā ainavā. Izstādes atklāšana - 31. janvārī plkst. 19.00.

Izstādē būs apskatāmas Reiņa Hofmaņa fotogrāfijas, kas ataino daudzdzīvokļu namus Latvijas pilsētās un laukos, kā arī četri konceptuāli arhitektūras maketi, kas vizualizē ikdienā neredzamus procesus un pievērš uzmanību mājokļu lomai aktuālu demogrāfijas, vides un politikas izaicinājumu kontekstā. Maketus veidojuši: māksliniece Darja Meļņikova, tēlnieks Ivars Drulle, dizainere Dita Pāne, arhitekts Mārtiņš Dušelis un scenogrāfe Šarlote Špihalska.

Izstādes atklāšanā tiks prezentēta arī arhitektu Evelīnas Ozolas un Matīsa Groskaufmaņa sastādīta grāmata “Kopā un atsevišķi: daudzdzīvokļu namu arhitektūra Latvijas ekonomiskajā, politiskajā un sociālajā ainavā”.


From February 1 to March 27, the ISSP Gallery in Riga will host «Together and Apart» — an exhibition about apartment buildings. The show will represent a part of the Latvian national contribution to the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2018. Opening on the 31st of January, 7 PM.

The exhibition will feature a photography series by Reinis Hofmanis, depicting apartment buildings found in Latvia’s urban and rural landscapes, alongside four conceptual architecture models that visualise processes hidden to the eye yet with a large impact on housing. The models are created by artist Daria Melnikova, sculptor Ivars Drulle, designer Dita Pāne, architect Mārtiņš Dušelis, and scenographer Charlotte Spichalsky.

A new book will be presented at the exhibition opening — «Kopā un atsevišķi: daudzdzīvokļu namu arhitektūra Latvijas ekonomiskajā, politiskajā un sociālajā ainavā» («Together and Apart: The Architecture of Apartment Buildings in the Economic, Political, and Social Landscape of Latvia» — in Latvian), edited by architects Evelīna Ozola and Matīss Groskaufmanis.
