MARIA KAPAJEVA. "DREAM IS WONDERFUL, YET UNCLEAR"

16.05. – 30.06.2019

Latvian Museum of Photography is pleased to present a solo exhibition of an Estonian artist Maria Kapajeva Dream Is Wonderful, Yet Unclear, which opens on May 16th. The exhibition is part of Riga Photomonth 2019 programme.
This exhibition explores the relationships between collective and personal memories by looking at the community surrounding a textile mill, now closed, of which the artist’s family was a part. The story of one small community is set in the larger context of post-industrial cities worldwide, as they seek new identities. The exhibition depicts a mill filled by powerful rhythms of looms and lively collectives of women workers that, in today’s competitive world seems like a bright and distant dream. Kapajeva focuses on women, with a heightened sensitivity towards social and political matters in post-Soviet culture. As the daughter of a textile designer, she spent her childhood at the mill, drawing fabric patterns and dreaming about the same job her mother had. In the exhibition, she interweaves her mother’s work, her childhood dreams and their failures with the workers’ collective ones to underline the division between personal and collective memories that together form our historical narratives.

VIKA EKSTA ANIMATED PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION „MOVING PHOTOGRAPHY”

17.08. – 5.11.2017

Photography exhibition “Moving Photography” featuring works by Latvian photographer Vika Eksta will be exhibited from 17th August in Latvian Museum of Photography.

Animated photography exhibition “Moving Photography” helps to study, interpret and improve the current exhibition of historical photography of the Latvian Museum of Photography, which is devoted to the development of photography media, by supplementing it with contemporary content. Animated photographs were taken while the author was working on objects exhibiting at the museum's permanent exhibition and with the museum staff, creating moving images in which these objects and people appear in the main role, thus, both reflecting on the media and technical development of photography, as well as allowing the viewer to see the historical exhibition “anew”.
