Maija Annikki Savolainen - Solarophytes

No 28. septembra līdz 3. novembrim ISSP Galerijā būs apskatāma somu mākslinieces Maijas Anniki Savolainenas izstāde “Solarofīti” (Solarophytes). Izstādes nosaukums veidots no jēdzieniem “solar-” (saules-) un “-fīti” (norāde uz augu vai specifisku biotopu), un tā pievēršas fotogrāfiskiem procesiem, kas neietilpst cilvēkam redzamajā elektromagnētisko viļņu diapazonā. Izstādes atklāšana – 27. septembrī plkst. 18.30.

From September 28 to November 3, the exhibition "Solarophytes" by Finnish artist Maija Annikki Savolainen will be on view at the ISSP Gallery. The title is derived from the terms “solar”- (relating to or determined by the sun) and “-phytes” (a reference to a plant or plant-like organism), and focuses on photographic processes that are not within the visible range of electromagnetic radiation.The opening of the exhibition - September 27 at 6.30 PM.

Jason Fulford - Clayton's Ascent

No 7. augusta līdz 19. septembrim ISSP Galerijā būs skatāma amerikāņu mākslinieka Džeisona Fulforda izstāde "Kleitona lidojums". Nosaukums aizgūts no deviņu stundu lidojuma ar gaisa balonu 1835. gadā. Darba pamatā ir attēli, kas uzņemti laikā no 1997. līdz 2003. gadam, kad Fulfords ar motociklu apceļoja ASV. 

From August 7 to September 20 the ISSP Gallery will host American photographer Jason Fulford's exhibition "Clayton's Ascent" .The title is derived from a nine-hour balloon flight in 1835. Shot between 1997 and 2003 while traveling the US by motorcycle, Fulford’s saturated colors are infused with a veiled foreboding, drawing a blurred line between the real and artificial.
