Art space Civita Nova
From July 9 to September 12, the ground floor art space Civita Nova at the Concert Hall will host an exhibition, meaningfully titled Man Lost at Sea near Liepāja, by a group of artists inspired by our City of Winds.
The contemporary art exhibition has united artists touched by the city of Liepāja and known for their signature styles, who will reflect on the topics of sea and humanity: Egons Peršēvics, Uldis Rubezis, Ieva Rubeze, and Raids Kalniņš.
A search always begins with something lost; and so, a man was lost – at sea near Liepāja.
“Our story is about the sea, the depth of its concept, about how a person is lost when confronted with its infinite depth. The desire to be near the sea cannot be fully explained, yet this is who we are – people by the sea,” goes the introduction by the creative team, “we – four independent artists intimately connected to Liepāja, each adding our own skills, want to talk about what it means to be a person here. Those who are from Liepāja do not go to the sea – its roaring is white noise which the locals are so used to that they don’t hear it anymore, they don’t sense its smell. It is a very special relationship, and the exhibition is our look at it.”
The exhibition can be viewed by anyone with observation of a 2 m distance and wearing a face mask.
Opening hours: Mon–Fri 11 a.m.–5 p.m., Sat–Sun 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
Organized by: Great Amber
