"Cyclic Memory", Gulbene, Latvia. 2019
This Installation/Performance is comprised of a combination of objects found on shelves in the studios of both artists. Mostly such shelved objects are set aside during the process of creating and are never finished. Simultaneously these forgotten objects are not important enough to keep, yet too important to throw out. In this case it was decided to unite the objects from both studios into one installation reflecting the memories of past collaborations as well as create space physically and mentally for future works. The performance involved the artists approaching the center of the installation from opposite directions pouring beeswax onto the objects and through this action unify the various parts into a whole. The attic of an abandoned Soviet Era school house seemed metaphorically an appropriate site for this project.
