Exhibitions

Visit the opening of the if(){} else{} || else if(){} exhibition by Martins Vizbulis at the RIXC Gallery, Lencu iela 2 on June 17 at 18:00. Our daily lives often take place in various kinds of rooms, and each of them tends to have its own special atmosphere. Martins Vizbulis uses this atmosphere or ambiance as a material for his artworks. The artist has created several data collectors in the form of abstract reliefs, equipped with sensors and placed in different rooms: in a concert hall, a pub, the artist's home, and the gallery. The collected data, such as the air temperature, the noise level, the light intensity, and the presence of alcohol molecules in the air, are visualized in unique data landscapes made from electronic circuit boards that the author himself calls the sensory data realism.

Martins Vizbulis is the Head of the Environmental Art Branch of the Audiovisual Media Art Department of the Art Academy of Latvia. He is an artist who studies microcontrollers and various sensors in order to make electronic artworks, that create a direct dialogue between the artwork and the viewer. The artist teaches the microcontroller and sensor studies to the students at the Art Academy of Latvia, in cooperation with Alvis Misjuns, merging reality with virtual reality.

The exhibition is on view at the RIXC Gallery, Lencu iela 2, until September 3, 2022.
Opening hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 12:00-18:00.

Supported by the State Culture Capital Foundation of Latvia.
