Kim? Contemporary Art Centre invites you to the opening of two solo shows on 5th of February, at 6:30 pm!

Solo show by Atis Jākobsons “Grid”

Atis Jākobsons in his solo show focuses on the grid as an invisible but present structure that twists phenomena (as well as ideas and gestures). In his exhibition Jākobsons is using a variety of techniques to create a multi-faceted composition.

“”Form is emptiness and the very emptiness is form; emptiness does not differ from form, form does not differ from emptiness; whatever is form, that is emptiness, whatever is emptiness, that is form, the same is true of feelings, perceptions, impulses and consciousness,” (from Heart Sutra, Mahayana Buddhism.). Quantum light grid before the big bang. Work with the system of the grid as submitting to the a law of universal forces. The path from the wandering of the subjective mind to cosmic and fundamental structures. Simultaneous awareness of form and formless.” – Atis Jākobsons

Solo show by Līva Rutmane “PRR”

KG: But do you like the process of drawing?
LR: No. I can’t stand it.

Needle in a haystack. That’s how Google translates it. It’s somewhere beyond reach, floating in the air at night. It’s a well-kept mechanism, bound to grind its maintainer. I talk to Līva’s music more often than with herself, I talk with wood chips. It’s almost saut dans le vide, except the void is still shaping up and growing, living as bacteria on a white cube’s concrete floor. For now, let’s hide.
