Tikšanās ar šībrīža ISSP Rīgas Rezidences mākslinieci Selīnu Gobilāru (Francija).
A meeting with ISSP Riga Residency artist Celine Gobillard (FR).
:: LV ::
Selīna Gobilāra ir māksliniece no Francijas, kas pēc vairākiem profesionālās dzīves posmiem nolēma pievērsties fotogrāfijai. Viņa ir ieguvusi zināšanas pašmācības ceļā, kā arī piedalījusies dažādās darbnīcās (ar Klavdiju Slubanu, Jusufu Sevincli un Arju Hītiainenu). Literatūra viņai ir svarīgs iedvesmas avots; Selīnas interešu lokā ir transrealitāte, kā arī sapņu, daiļliteratūras un fantāzijas esamība mūsu ikdienas dzīvē.
Papildus personīgajiem projektiem viņa piedalās arī kolektīvos projektos, kur fotogrāfija mijiedarbojas ar citiem mākslinieciskās izpausmes veidiem (teksts, skaņa, performance). Viņa šobrīd dzīvo Nantes pilsētā, Francijā.
Pagājušajā gadā Selīna atklāja ISSP, piedaloties vasaras skolā, un pēc tam nolēma pieteikties rezidencei Rīgā, kur viņa dzīvo un strādā šī gada augustā/septembrī.

After several professional lives, french artist Celine Gobillard decided to focus on photography. As a self-taught photographer, she has participated in several workshops (with Klavdij Sluban, Yusuf Sevincli and Arja Hyytiäinen). Literature is an important source of inspiration; she works on issues of transreality, and the immersion of dreams, fiction and fantasy into daily life.
Beyond personal projects, she has also participated in collective propositions in which photography meets other forms of artistic expression (text, sound, performance). She currently lives in Nantes.
Last year, she discovered ISSP by participating in the summer school, and decided then to apply for the residency, where she is working between August - September 2019.
