Divu ISSP Rīgas Rezidences mākslinieču autorvakars.
A meeting with current ISSP Riga Residency artists Tekla Inari (FI) and Anastasia Starikova (LV).

::LV::

Aicinām neformālā gaisotnē iepazīties ar divu mākslinieču, kas šobrīd uzturās Latvijā ISSP Rīgas Rezidences ietvaros, darbību - ieskaitot projektus, pie kā viņas strādā Rīgā. 

Tekla Inari (Somija) ieguvusi Aalto Universitātes maģistra grādu fotogrāfijā. Savos darbos viņa pēta plašākus sociālos tematus caur personisku stāstu prizmu, izmantojot fotogrāfiju un tekstu. Viņas pirmā grāmata "Legacy" (Musta taide, 2015) runā par kara atstāto traumu un mantojuma nastu, kas pēckara Somijā tiek nodota no vienas paaudzes uz nākamo. Īsā grāmata "Blue Years" (Kosmos, 2017) veidota izmantojot viedtālruni, un ataino sirdi plosošu mīlas stāstu starp diviem jauniešiem postmodernā, sadrumstalotā pasaulē. Abas grāmatas saņēmušas apbalvojumus no Finnish Book Art Committee. Tekla dzīvo Helsinkos, kur viņa strādā arī kā mākslas mediators. Pašlaik viņa veido savu trešo grāmatu.

Viņas jaunākie darbi ietver virkni arhīvu, kas izveidoti SWOP SHOP projektam sadarbībā ar Birmingemas pilsētas universitāti, Selfridges un Tate Liverpool, kā arī publikāciju ar nosaukumu “Uzņēmējdarbība”, kas dokumentē tiešsaistes performanci par cenzūras un informācijas izplatīšanās tēmām.

Two artists with very different backgrounds are currently creating new work as a part of the ISSP Riga Residency programme. This meeting is a chance to hear about their work and the projects they are developing in Riga.

Tekla Inari graduated from the Aalto University MA Programme in Photographic Art, she is a Finnish artist who implements text and photography in her expression. In her work, she aims to harness personal stories for the exploration of larger societal themes. Her first book Legacy (Musta taide, 2015) handled the trauma of war and the burdens inherited from one generation to the next in the post-war Finland. Blue Years (Kosmos, 2017) was shot and written mostly with a smart phone, depicting the heart-wrenching love story of two young adults in a postmodern, fragmented world. Both books were recipients of the award for The Most Beautiful Books of the Year by Finnish Book Art Committee. Currently, Tekla is working on her third book with a grant from Kone Foundation. She is based in Helsinki, Finland and also works as an art mediator in the area.

Anastasia Starikova (1991) is a visual artist from Latvia, living and working in Birmingham, UK. She is interested in archiving practises and the urge to collect, digital and/or fictional narratives, texts and web interventions. Her recent works include a series of archives created for SWOP SHOP project in collaboration with Birmingham City University, Selfridges and Tate Liverpool as well as a publication titled 'The Business' that documents an online performance based around the concepts of censorship, information dissemination and dialogue. In Riga Anastasia is working on a project with her family archive.
