Pingyao 2014: Contemporary


Viewfinders features 15 artists from eight countries whose work says curator Inga Brūvere, “Represents a number of current trends in Nordic and Baltic photography and represents various generations. Viewfinders focuses on self-discovery, people’s private spaces and questions they ask themselves. Among the dense spectrum of issues addressed in this exhibition, a few quickly emerge as characteristic to the region: an interest in reflecting on the urban as a problem in the coexistence of man and nature; an interest in the past, attainable through one’s own and other’s memories; a focus on the everyday, often touched by a dreamlike, surreal imagination – characteristic to the contemporary female. And, finally, the tendency of taking everything around you with a healthy dose of humour.”
