Le Solitaire (French for patience, loner) is a single player card game, played by arranging cards in
a particular order. Digital illustrations, animations, and net artworks displayed in the solo show by
Santa France, titled after the card game, have been produced in communication with a computer,
creating and arranging 3D objects in compositions by principles known only to the author herself.
Through designing glossy interiors and creating still life compositions, answers are sought to the
question "how to be alone?" – to work in solitude, to be self-sufficient, how to compensate the lack
of human contact by browsing the internet and using one's inner resources. The works displayed in
the “Le Solitaire” exhibition are created by the artist after graduating New Media Art program in
Liepaja University (2017). Exhibition is open until August 26.
Santa France (Sunta Frunce) is a new media artist born in 1993, in her artistic practice she
explores the potential of 3D software and uses it to create web collages, video, animated gif
images and digital illustrations. 3D environments made by the artist have been recently published
on the cover of the German design journal “Form”.
