Exhibition “Memory Box” can be seen at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre (3 Mihaila Street) from 1th December, 2017 to 21th January, 2018.
Anticipating the Centenary of the Latvian State and the 2nd Latvia International Ceramics Biennale in 2018, this year, on December 1, 2017, the Daugavpils Clay Art Centre in cooperation with the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre will open an International Ceramics Competition MEMORY BOX. This time the exhibition is dedicated to the remembrance of the outstanding Latvian ceramist Pēteris Martinsons (1931-2013). In his creative work, Pēteris Martinsons repeatedly created Memory Boxes. They were predominantly small-sized geometric shapes, decorated with reliefs and vivid glazes. The artist immortalized his memories of places and people encountered, thus symbolically keeping them in safety and preventing them from fading.
The International Ceramics Competitions MEMORY BOX is organised by the Daugavpils Clay Art Centre in cooperation with Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre. The event is being implemented in the framework of the 2nd Latvia International Ceramics Biennale program in 2018, anticipating the Centenary of the Latvian state.
