4.09. White Night. 4pm-8pm. Workshop for families “Skaistuma mušiņu rāmētava”/ “Framing of Beauty Flies”

Within the framework of this year's contemporary culture forum White Night and at the same time also within the international contemporary art festival Survival Kit 12, this Saturday, September 4, you are welcome to join workshop for families “Skaistuma mušiņu rāmētava”/ “Framing of Beauty Flies” created by artists Gundega Evelone and Andris Landau will take place from 16.00 to 20.00 (free access throughout the afternoon). 


About the workshop: During the unusual workshop, using sculptural techniques and capturing visitors' bodily distinctions with a polaroid camera, the artists will work with the visitors to create and frame small works of contemporary art. "We, your beauty flies, birthmarks, scars, warts, bushy eyebrows and wrinkles, are offended that you despise us in this way. You hide us under thick layers of makeup, erase them with lasers and stretch them behind your ears. we make homo sapiens faces different and recognizable. We celebrate your life experience and mark achievements, and we need to be highlighted for that. "


During the workshop “Framing of Beauty Flies”, everyone will be able to celebrate any peculiarity of their own skin and finally bring it to a place of honor. It will be possible to fix the body marks in a specially equipped photo studio, create a luxurious one by hand, and place it in a photo frame to be placed in a place of honor at home.


15.00 - 21.00 We invite you to learn more about the Survival Kit 12 exhibition and museum together with Art ambassadors!
