(English) Solo exhibition “A. Bikse’s fight with the void” 2019

Exhibition hall in Latgale embassy GORS, Rezekne, Latgale

Through this exhibition the author communicates his refection on various personal and socio-political processes. The exhibition is made up of works that represent different time periods and speak of various themes. This compilation illuminates one person’s inner world and its edges. Simultaneously personal issues are solved and their relevance is questioned.

The exhibition draws attention to the importance of human activity as context-specific – it is determined by situation and perspective. At a given moment a person may be very proud of himself/herself while the following moment he/she might understand it is worth nothing. The human is then overwhelmed with sadness brought by a realisation that the path to fulfilment is more complex than initially intended or quite different in its essence.

Overestimating oneself may eventually lead to a realisation of one’s insignificance in a broader context. These fluctuations, the sum of which is likely to be zero – emptiness. The void that frees from assumptions and imagination.

We build assumptions and concepts only to take them apart and build new ones in order to create our model of the world as harmonious as possible.
