The 2nd exhibition of the Latvia series shows the installation “The Gardener / Dārznieks” by the group “Famous Five”.
The group “Famous Five” or “F5” was founded in 1998 during the media art symposium “Polar Circuit” in Tornio, Finland. “F5” is made up of five members who work in different formations on different projects.
In 2002 “F5” participated in the 25th São Paulo Biennale with the work “Have a Nice Night” and in 2005 represented the Republic of Latvia at the 51st International Biennale for Contemporary Art in Venice with the exhibition “Dark Bulb”.
The installation “The Gardener” was created in collaboration with Līga Marcinkeviča, Ieva Rubeze and Mārtiņš Ratniks and was shown for the first time at the Centre for Contemporary Art “KIM?” in Riga.
Līga Marcinkeviča, Ieva Rubeze and Mārtiņš Ratniks come to the opening. Norbert Weber gives an introduction.
The exhibition runs until 29 March. It is open Mon-Fri from 15-18 or by telephone agreement.
