Curators: Valentinas Klimašauskas, Inga Lāce
Artist: Daiga Grantiņa
Commissioner: Dace Vilsone, The Minister for Culture
Organized by: Kim? Contemporary Art Centre and Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art

“Saules Sun”s is a multi-centred landscape that unfolds around several suns, several sources of light traversing manifold materials and shapes. As if the scene of some cosmological dawn, it opens itself up as a site and moment for the generation of possibilities. The diversity of the shapes that appear across the landscape is strengthened by the multitude of possible perspectives and paths through the installation. Daiga Grantiņa uses a wide range of everyday materials, from the synthetic to the organic, often inverting and trespassing beyond the limits of their traditional uses. She bends metal into spirals, casts light into shadow, fluffs cotton into fuchsia purple blossoms.
