Still Life


Artwork was made in a collaboration with Sandis Aispurs. The sculpture relates to the well-known genre of still life from the end of 16th and 17th century when it was at it’s glory during the Dutch Golden century of painting. Fruits and vegetables painted by Dutch are replaced with some harvest of Latvian nature - leek, cherries, apples and a pear. The hare itself is alive and fine and it highlights the ability of the Creator to acknowledge the miracle - the birth of every living creature. The hare has resurrected - a greeting to the ancient art as well as to the modern conceptual art. Artists especially highlight the heritage of the German artist Joseph Beuys and his performance "How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare". The sculpture has been permanently placed in the Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia. Dimensions are 5 x 3 x 4 metres.

The Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation programme Art in the Public Space is the philanthropists’ contribution to Riga’s emergence as an outstanding cultural metropolis.
