Foto/photo: Ansis Vegners

Līdz 27. decembrim ISSP Galerijā apskatāmi divi Zviedrijā dzīvojošās japāņu mākslinieces Mako Išidzukas (Mako Ishizuka) darbi – 2014. gadā aizsāktā projekta “Pārgatavošanās un bojāšanās” daļa, kas veidota kā zīmējuma instalācija jeb “domu karte”, un instalācija “Grāmatplaukts”. Išidzuka viesojas Rīgā, lai piedalītos Starptautiskajā Literatūras festivālā “Prozas lasījumi 2019”, un uzturas ISSP Rīgas rezidencē. Mākslinieces darbu uzmanības centrā ir dažādas tēmas, kuru pētīšanai un izteikšanai izmantota teksta un vizuālas koncepcijas sintēze.

Until December 27, the ISSP Gallery presents two artworks by Japanese-born Swedish artist Mako Ishizuka who uses synthesis of text and visual conception in her art. “After-Ripening & Corruption”, which is a “map of thoughts” drawn on the gallery’s window, revolves around the cultural and language translations in the lives of people who live on the move. While in her installation “Bookshelf” the artist contemplates on the distances created by age, culture and values. Ishizuka is one of the participants of the International Literature Festival “Prose Readings 2019” and a resident at the ISSP Riga Residency.
