Kaspars Podnieks' exhibition "Unusual Place"
Kaspars Podnieks' exhibition "Unusual Place" (Neparasta vieta) at kim? / VKN Gallery from 16.01. until 07.02.2010. The exhibited works is a continuation of the series of photographs exhibited alongside the works of Ojārs Pētersons, Monika Pormale, Jānis Garančs and others at the exhibition “Heroes of our Time” at Cēsis in 2009. The notion of “place” that can equally well be understood as a portion of space, social station or a particular point that one has reached, as in a book, derives both physical as well as spiritual meaning in the works of Kaspars Podnieks. As the artist himself states, “In my creative process, essential points of reference and objects of research are connected with Drusti. I come from there and I am there. There I gain the certainty that the work will be true and thus worthwhile to the others as well.”
