Guided tour and talk :: Diāna Tamane, Commissions
20. decembrī plkst. 18.00 ISSP Galerija aicina uz ekskursiju pa izstādi "Pasūtījums" un tikšanos ar mākslinieci Diānu Tamani un izstādes kuratori Evitu Gozi. Būs iespējams uzzināt vairāk gan par izstādē redzamajiem darbiem, gan par iepriekšējiem projektiem, kuros Diāna sadarbojusies ar savu ģimeni.
On December 20 at 6pm the ISSP Gallery is hosting a guided tour in the exhibition Commissions & talk with the artist Diana Tamane and curator Evita Goze - a chance to hear more about the images in the exhibition and Diana's previous projects involving her family.
Zinot, ka Diāna studējusi fotogrāfiju vairāk nekā desmit gadus, dažkārt tēvs palūdz, vai viņa nevarētu nofotografēt Rīgas panorāmu, ko pielikt pie viesistabas sienas. Diāna parasti atbild, ka neko tādu nedara. Gadījies arī, ka viņa plāno uzdāvināt fotogrāfiju vecmāmiņai, bet māte pasteidzas to ierāmēt sudrabotā rāmī. Diāna dusmojas, bet māte atbild, ka vecmāmiņai tā patiks. ISSP Galerijai veidotajā izstādē “Pasūtījums” Diāna beidzot apmierina savas ģimenes vēlmes.
Diāna Tamane (Latvija/ Igaunija, 1986) dzimusi Rīgā, dzīvo un strādā starp Tartu un Rīgu. Viņa ir viena no atpazīstamākajām jaunās paaudzes Latvijas māksliniecēm, kuras galvenais izteiksmes rīks ir fotogrāfija, taču savos darbos viņa izmanto arī video, skaņu, tekstu un atrastus objektus. Absolvējusi Tartu Mākslas koledžu, Sint-Lucas Mākslas skolu Briselē un HISK mākslas institūtu Gentē. Viņas darbi plaši izstādīti Eiropa un pasaulē, kā arī atrodas Vintertūras Fotomuzeja un privātās kolekcijās.
Knowing that Diāna has been studying photography for more than a decade, sometimes her father asks whether she could take a panorama photograph of Riga for his living room wall. Usually she declines, saying that’s not really what she does. Once, she planned to give a photo to her grandmother as a gift, but her mother placed it in a silver frame. Diāna was angry, but her mother answered that grandma would like it. In the exhibition “Commissions” created for the ISSP Gallery, Diāna finally fulfils her family’s wishes.
Diāna Tamane (Latvia/ Estonia, 1986) was born in Riga, and lives and works between Tartu and Riga. Her primary medium of expression is photography, but she also uses video, sound, text and found objects in her work. Graduated from the Tartu Art College, the LUCA School of Arts in Brussels and HISK in Ghent. Her works have been widely exhibited in Europe and worldwide, and are held in the collection of the Winterthur Museum and private collections.
