This year, Latvia is hosting its second international ceramics biennale. Through a series of large public events, it will tell a polyphonic story of contemporary ceramics in Latvia and give a glimpse into ceramic tendencies and developments on the global stage. To celebrate the centenary of statehood in the three Baltic states, the biennale programme will feature exhibitions of contemporary ceramics from neighbouring Lithuania and Estonia. By established tradition, a group show of Latvian contemporary ceramics will be held along with a range of individual projects that will talk about remarkable representatives of Latvian and international ceramic art.
The exhibition showcases some of the works that the artists created over the past two weeks in Daugavpils, drawing from its atmosphere and enjoying the nature’s gift of all but uninterrupted sunshine. Perhaps these works tell a story of a different Daugavpils – one that can only be seen through ceramicists’ eyes as they create artwork which oozes the unique feel and ambience of the town and its surroundings.
