la riga Usuallly artists form groups in order to carry out their projects. They are united by a similar mode of thinking, a common idea or friendship. Ìirts Korps and Santa Oborenko met in 1997 when they entered the Applied Arts College of Riga, now Riga Design and Art School, Ceramics Department. The first project to involve both of them was "The Occupation of the New School" in 1998. Martins Virbulis, too, studied at the Applied Arts College of Riga, Wood Design Department. The four participants met in the Visual Communication Department of the Academy of Art of Latvia. Santa Oborenko and Krißs Salmanis were part of the "X13" group. This is the first exhibition to bring the four of them together . The exhibition takes place in the territory of a former steam-engine factory (Fabbrica del Vapore) in Milan, where the contemporary art centre "CAREOF" has now settled. Having seen the work of Santa Oborenko, the director of "CAREOF", Mr. Mario Gorni, invited her to set up an exhibition together with like-minded young artists from Latvia. So the foursome from the Visual Communication Department of the Academy of Art of Latvia was formed: íirts Korps, Santa Oborenko, Krißs Salmanis and Martins Virbulis. In addition to the works of these artists, a collection of a number of Latvian artists' videos is shown. In Italian, the title of the project, "La riga", means a stripe, a line, a row (of people or things), a ruler etc. Since "La riga" encompasses also the name of the place where these artists come from, a semantic link between Riga and Milan is formed.

la riga Di solito gli artisti si riuniscono in gruppi per realizzare progetticollettivi. Sono accomunati da idee, da affinità o da visioni del mondo simili, oppure da una semplice amicizia. Girts Korps e Santa Oborenko si sono conosciuti nel 1997, quando hanno cominciato a studiare al Collegio di arte applicata di Riga (RLMK) – ora “Scuola di arte e design” - frequentando entrambi il Dipartimento di ceramica. Il loro primo progetto, realizzato con gli altri studenti del corso, fu l’azione”Occupazione della nuova scuola” nel 1998. Hanno partecipato in seguito con i loro video alla mostra di arte ceramica organizzata dal RLMK. Anche Martins Virbulis ha compiuto gli studi al Collegio di arte applicata, nel Dipartimento di design del legno, ma tutti si sono infine incontrati all’Accademia d’arte, nel Dipartimento di comunicazione visiva. Santa Oborenko e Kriss Salmanis hanno lavorato nell’associazione non-profit “Radoßa grupa X13”. Ėla prima volta che i quattro artisti partecipano insieme a una mostra. Mario Gorni, il direttore di “Careof”, ha conosciuto l’opera di Santa Oborenko e l’ha invitata a pensare a un’idea da realizzarsi insieme ad altri giovani artisti lettoni, che potessero condividere lo spirito del progetto. Si è formato così questo “quartetto” dell’Accademia d’arte lettone, Dipartimento comunicazione visiva (VKN). Oltre alle opere dei quattro artisti, viene mostrata al Care of la collezione di video arte, con opere di artisti del VKN. Il titolo del progetto, “la Riga”, allude a un rapporto di connessione, anche semantico, tra la capitale lettone e Milano.

Nav lînijas starp melno un balto Kur melnais beidzas, tur baltais såkas un, ja kåds novilks tur lîniju, tad tå kalpos kå lînija starp melno un balto, bet tå nebüs ne melna, ne balta. nav lînijas starp dzîvîbu un nåvi Kur dzîvîba beidzas, tur nåve såkas un, ja kåds tur novilks lîniju, tad tå kalpos kå lînija starp dzîvîbu un nåvi, bet tå nebüs ne dzîvîba, ne nåve. nav paralélas lînijas Eksisté lînijas, kas veido laukumus un perpendikulårås lînijas, kuras savieno tos vai ß˚ir. Lînijas, kas ß˚érso robeΩas. Mednieki ir lînija, kas savelkas cießi ap mér˚i, lai ar perpendikulåras lînijas palîdzîbu iegrüstu to citå spéles laukumå. Lode ir lînija, kas triecas no dzîvîbas nåvé, tå nevar lidot starp ßiem diviem laukumiem. there’s no line between black and white Where black ends white begins and if anyone was to draw a line there , it would only serve as a line between them, being neither white nor black. there’s no line between life and death Where life ends death begins and if anyone was to draw a line there , it would only serve as a line between them, being neither life nor death. there are no parallel lines Only lines defining areas exist and perpendicular lines joining or separating them. Lines crossing borders. Hunters are a line, tightening around the target, aiming to push it into another arena. A bullet is a line plunging from life into death, it cannot go between them. Non esiste una linea tra nero e bianco. Dove il nero finisce il bianco comincia, e se qualcuno è passato a tracciarvi una linea, allora sarà solo una linea tra il nero e il bianco, senza essere né bianco né nero. Non esiste una linea tra vita e morte. Dove la vita termina inizia la morte, e se qualcuno è passato a tracciarvi una linea, allora sarà solo una linea tra la vita e la morte, senza essere né morte né vita. Non esistono linee parallele. Solo le linee che definiscono un’area esistono, come le linee perpendicolari che le uniscono o le separano. Le linee che superano i confini. I cacciatori sono una linea che si stringe attorno all’obiettivo, con lo scopo di spingerlo in un’altra arena. Un proiettile è una linea che vola dalla vita alla morte, senza via di mezzo.

Tåpéc tås ir medîbas un medîjums. Because that is the hunt and the prey. Perché quella è la caccia e quella la preda.

MeΩaa zvéri zin, ka no mums ir jåbaidås. In the forest the animals know they have to be afraid of us. Gli animali del bosco sanno che devono avere paura di noi.

Vienam trofeja ir ga¬a, otram ragi. To one the trophy is the meat, to the second are the antlers. Per uno il trofeo è la carne, per un altro le corna. Smadzenes ir påråk mazs un riskants mér˚is. The brain is a very small and risky target. Il cervello è un bersaglio troppo piccolo e rischioso.

Dzivniekam ir tik pat daudz iespeeju aizbeegt kaa mums vinnu nomediit. Animals have the same chance to escape as we have to catch them. Gli animali hanno la stessa possibilità di scappare che noi di prenderli.

Beeru_sejas (video loop, 2002, vhs)

Runåt par kaut kådu robeΩu, kas noß˚ir patiesîbu no nepatiesîbas, reålo no iluzorå utml. müsdienås ir k¬uvis ¬oti grüti. Tå kå patiesîbas mekléjumi beidzas ar apjégsmi, ka viss ir relatîvs, tas pats ir attiecinåms uz robeΩu, aiz kuras tå it kå varétu büt mekléjama. Protams, paliek iespéja pårkåpt to robeΩu, kas ß˚ir müsu cilvécisko pasauli no tås, kur mît Absolüts, taçu, kå råda visa kultüras un filosofijas vésture, sava pråta iespéjas apjégußais Cilvéks nevar tå vienkårßi pa¬auties uz varbütîbu. Cilvéka mekléjumu, pråtojumu un radoßås darbîbas rezultåts ir tik komplicéts, ka izß˚irt kas ir kas bieΩi aprobeΩojas ar bezvårdu solidaritåti un maigu iecietîbu pret centieniem kaut ko pateikt... jaunu. RobeΩa ir relatîva, bet patiesîba - nepamanåma. Speaking of a border between truth and lies, the real and the illusory nowadays has become very difficult. Since the searching for truth ends with a realisation that everything is relative, the same applies to the border beyond which it could be looked for. Of course, we still have the option of crossing the line into the realm of the Absolute, but, judging by what the entire history of culture and philosopy shows us, Man cannot rely just on bare chance, having grasped the possibilities of his mind. The result of Man’s searching, reasoning and creating processes is so complex that an attempt to understand often limits itself to silent solidarity and a tender tolerance towards the endeavours to say something… new. The border is relative, the truth – indiscernible. Parlare di confine tra verità e menzogne, tra reale e illusorio, è diventato oggi molto difficile. Poiché la ricerca della verità si conclude nel rendersi conto che tutto è relativo, lo stesso accade al confine oltre al quale essa potrebbe essere cercata. Naturalmente abbiamo sempre la possibilità di oltrepassare la linea del regno dell’Assoluto, ma, giudicando da ciò che la storia, la cultura e la filosofia ci insegnano, l’uomo non può fare affidamento solo sul puro caso, avendo coscienza delle possibilità del suo intelletto. Il risultato della ricerca, dei ragionamenti e dei processi creativi dell’uomo è così complesso che ogni tentativo di comprensione si autolimita spesso alla silente solidarietà e alla tenera tolleranza verso gli sforzi di coloro che dicono qualcosa… di nuovo. Il confine è relativo, la verità indiscernibile.

The more I think about a line (la riga) which is said to be separating something from something else (be it my neighbourhood from yours or finding from thieving) or a line connecting (two telephone poles or Riga and Milan), the more I am forced to recall one of the basic teachings of academic drawing – in nature, there are no lines. Everything that appears as such, upon closer inspection turns out to be a volume of some sort (beginning with the perfect seams between marble slates on a façade and ending with your lover’s name pissed into the snow). Line is a product of the mind. In our minds, we do tend to draw a line every now an again – between the new year and the old one, or from here to there. But New year arrives differently at different time zones, and we take different routes from here to there. And behold – our taut lines loosen and blur until they start resembling shapes or areas. Even radical opposites can turn out unreliable. Where do you nowadays draw the line between using foodstuffs for surviving purposes and a slow suicide, or between making love and consuming? We are probably closest to a line with a clearly defined beginning and end when thinking of the vector which points to what, sadly, is at the end of my otherwise very lively little stories. Actually, as far as I know, it is at the end of the stories of all of us. Più penso alla linea (la riga), cioè a quella cosa che si dice separi qualcosa da qualcos’altro (il mio quartiere dal vostro, o il trovare dal rubare) o che metta in comunicazione (due telefoni, oppure Riga e Milano), più sono costretto a ricordare uno degli insegnamenti basilari del disegno accademico: in natura non esistono le linee. Ogni cosa che sembra essere una linea, a un esame più attento ci svela la sua condizione di volume (dalle cuciture perfette tra le lastre di marmo della facciata di un palazzo fino al nome dell’amata pisciato sulla neve). La linea è un prodotto della mente. Nella nostra mente noi tendiamo a tracciare una linea per ogni cosa, tra l’anno nuovo e il vecchio, o tra qui e là. Ma l’anno nuovo arriva in tempi differenti nei differenti fusi orari, e noi prendiamo strade diverse per andare da qui a là. E a ben guardare, le nostre linee tese si allentano e si offuscano finché cominciano ad assomigliare a forme e ad aree. Persino gli estremi opposti si possono rendere inattendibili. Dove tracciate oggi la linea tra il cibarsi per sopravvivere e il lento suicidio, o tra il fare l’amore e l’essere vittima del consumismo? Siamo probabilmente più vicini a una linea con un inizio e una fine ben definiti quando pensiamo a una direttrice puntata verso quella che è, sfortunatamente, la conclusione della mia piccola storia (altrimenti piena di vita). Effettivamente, a quanto ne so, è la fine delle storie di tutti noi.

La riga. Lînija manå uztveré ir kaut kas, kas atdala vienu lietu no otras un savieno otro ar pirmo. Vienmér bijis aktuåls jautåjums: „Vai Dievs ir?” Neatbildéßu jums uz ßo jautåjumu, jo to, manupråt, varétu zinåt tikai Ådams un Ieva. Es to nezinu. Man liekas, ka neviens arî nezina kas ir lînija un kur tå atrodas, jo laiks lîniju iznîcina, viñß to sadala vairåkås. Kå slota, kur vienå galå ir kåts un otrå - zari. Varbüt tießi tåpéc manå darbå ir svétie, kuriem grüti saskatît sejas, jo gaißais oreols müsu acij tås slépj. Iespéjams, ßajå reli©ijå, kuru ar Romas svétîbu mums ieviesa våcu krustneßi 13.gs, esmu saskatîjis kaut ko no savas lînijas puses. PersonåΩi ir mana mamma, kaimiñi un draugi. La riga. A line is what separates one thing from another and joins the second with the first. We’ve always asked if God exists. I won’t attempt to answer the question, for it is only Adam and Eve who could really know. I don’t. The same as I don’t think anyone knows what a line is and where it abides, for time destroys the line by splitting it into many. Like a besom – a stick on this side, birches on the other. Maybe it is due to this reason that my work has saints in it with their faces disguised by the brightness of their halos. I may have spotted a bit of my side of the line in this religion brought to us by the Rome-blessed German crusaders of the 13th century. The portrayed are my mum, my neighbours and my friends. La riga. Una linea è ciò che separa una cosa da un’altra, e unisce la seconda con la prima. Ci siamo sempre chiesti se Dio esista. Non cercherò di dare una risposta, solo Adamo ed Eva potrebbero saperlo veramente. Io no. Allo stesso modo, non conosco nessuno che sappia cosa sia una linea o dove esse si trovino, perché il tempo le distrugge spaccando l’una in molte. Come una ramazza: un bastone da un lato e tanti rametti dall’altro. Forse è per questa ragione che nelle mie opere ci sono santi dai volti nascosti dalla brillantezza delle loro aureole. Potrei ora aver rivelato qualcosa della mia linea a proposito di tale religione, esportata nel nostro paese dai crociati teutonici del XIII secolo. Le persone ritratte nelle foto sono mia mamma, i miei vicini e gli amici.

Måra Traumane

The common lines of visual communicators Have a closer look at the scheme of the exhibition “la riga” and you will notice something quite uncommon in the contemporary art scene – it is the exhibiotion of a certain school of artists. It means that, just like in the Middle Ages or during the Renaissance, the stars of the exhibition do not just have a common medium, DV in this case, but also the same education and understanding of the principles guiding the art production process. Almost all participants of “la riga” have studied in the Visual Communication Department (VKN) of the Academy of Art of Latvia. Since the mid-nineties, it has developed into a quite independent and influential centre of creative education. Today, if we were to take a look at the biographies of the artists of the younger generation, VKN would be the most common entry in the education section. Being in many ways a kind of a workshop, VKN was the first at the Academy to introduce a systematic coputer course and to involve a number of prominent Latvian artists as teachers of art and media – Kristaps Ìelzis; Raitis Ímits and others. When visiting the premises of the VKN, one come across an actively orange object every now and again (be it a clothes-peg or a web camera) – evidence of the reign of the head of the department, artist Ojårs Pétersons in this territory. However, it is still not strictly defined, what visual communication itself might really be. Pétersons sometimes states that, at a certain point, a Department of Virtual Truth or a Manual Communicaton Department could well be introduced, too. The idea of a school is also a widely poetic one when viewed in the context of the correlation between a certain pgeographic point (Riga) and a certain time – end of the nineties and turn of the centuries. It seems quite indicant that the first VKN students to encounter DV (the future members of F5) did that in 1997 while visiting a multimedia workshop, where experiments in the generating and broadcasting of sounds were as important as those in creating moving images. The multimedia beginning, it seems, started off a whole new movement in the practice of young Riga artists connected to processes outside the conventional borders of visual art – in the sound-, web- and cityscape. A number of new characteristics are to be observed – the range and openness of informal organisations, the rapid growth of the net and the new jargon of the technologies where, for example, “capturing”, “mixing” and “looping” are as common in the lexicon of an art student as they are in the language of a contemporary musician. The effects of sound, subculture aesthetics and the ideas of new media can be observed in a number of art projects – “99% svaigs” (Linards Kulless, Voldemårs Johansons), net radio project Rigasound (www.rigasound.org), in the stylish VJ-ing material of F5 (Lîga Marcinkeviça, Ieva Rubeze, Mårtiñß Ratniks, Ervîns Broks, Renårs Krümiñß, Félikss Zîders), in their video publication “Time to Jack” dedicated to tape–art and house music, or in the numerous quotes of elements of urban culture (break, hip-hop). Similarly, in individual works passers-by get tangled in the rhythm of music in “Outskirts” by Katrîna Neiburga while the brief industrial language dominates in the films by Ìirts Korps. Interest directed at the space outside art has caused not just a change of instruments and aesthetics, but also the adoption of new methods and subjects revealed in the “Teashroom” project (Open; Katrîna Neiburga, Péteris imelis) which was both a film-research about the oblivious teashroom-growers and a cornershop-intervention, as well as a commentary on today’s consumerism. A likewise entertainingly-penetrating study takes place also in the following work by Katrîna Neiburga – “What’s in the Girls’ Handbags”. On the other hand, these artists are united by the medium. DV and its main feature – convenience (and affordability) has finally implemented the principle of the medium as the message instead of quality per se. “la riga” and the VKN group differs from the predecessing and contemporary film and video art scene exactly with the prevalence of narrative in their works. The nostalgic materiality of the film, its light and colour effect cliches are left out of their frame. The works of these artists are characterized by a conceptual, often concentrated content where what is being filmed is more important than how. This often witty code can be spotted in individual videos by Lîga Marcinkeviça, Kristîne Kursißa, Félikss Zîders, Renårs Krümiñß, Monika Pormale. At other times, though, the formal capacities of DV are revealed via the use of computers or filming equipment ( “And Others” by Ieva Rubeze, the works of Ervins Broks and F5, “1 second-24 frames” by Renårs Krümiñß, “Face to Face With the Enemy” by Dace DΩeriña). The idea behind these works is possibly a characteristic feature not only of the school but also of the generation as a whole. The ability to record quickly and easily allows them to capture the moment but also lays the burden of the need for a conceptual message on them. For an outsider any talk of generations within “la riga” may seem a joke, but it seems that the VKN generations can be separated by just a year or two. The end of the nineties now seems legendary history, while the entry of the first generation (F5) into the 25th Sao Paulo Biennial – sudden but natural. Whether the borderline between a student and an artist is tangible, is for the visitor of “la riga” to judge. But – is there a generation conflict there? Apparently not.


Måra Traumane La linea comune dei comunicatori visivi

Date un’occhiata da vicino al progetto della mostra “la Riga” e vi accorgerete di qualcosa di molto insolito nella scena dell’arte contemporanea: è la mostra di una certa scuola di artisti. Significa che, proprio come nel Medioevo o durante il Rinascimento, i protagonisti dell’esposizione non utilizzano solamente lo stesso medium, il DV in questo caso, ma pure la stessa formazione scolastica e la medesima interpretazione dei princìpi guida dei processi di produzione dell’arte. Quasi tutti i partecipanti de “la Riga” hanno studiato al Dipartimento di comunicazione visiva (VKN) dell’Accademia d’arte lettone che, a partire da metà degli anni novanta, è divenuto un autorevole e indipendente centro di istruzione creativa. Oggi, se andassimo a sbirciare le biografie degli artisti della generazione più giovane, il VKN sarebbe la voce più comune nei titoli di studio. Essendo in qualche modo una sorta di workshop, il VKN è stato in accademia il primo dipartimento a introdurre un corso sistematico di computer e a invitare come docenti di arte e media un certo numero di importanti artisti lettoni: Kristaps Ìelzis, Raitis Ímits e altri. Visitando la sede del VKN ci si potrebbe imbattere in un oggetto di colore arancio ad ogni angolo (che sia un appendiabiti o una web camera, non importa): sono le prove dell’appartenenza di questo territorio al regno incontrastato del capo dipartimento, l’artista Ojårs Pétersons. Comunque non è ancora precisamente definito ciò che potrebbe essere in realtà la comunicazione visiva. Pétersons talvolta dichiara che non è escluso che un giorno potrebbero essere istituiti anche un Dipartimento di verità virtuale o una Scuola di comunicazione manuale. La stessa idea di scuola è anche un concetto molto poetico, se riferito al contesto della relazione tra un certo punto geografico (Riga) e un dato tempo (la fine degli anni novanta e l’inizio del nuovo millennio). Sembra molto indicativo il fatto che i primi studenti del VKN a utilizzare il DV (i futuri membri di F5) lo fecero nel 1997 durante la partecipazione a un workshop sul multimedia, dove gli esperimenti di generazione e di trasmissione dei suoni erano altrettanto importanti quanto quelli di creare immagini in movimento. Il debutto in ambito multimediale pare che abbia dato l’avvio a un vero e proprio nuovo movimento tra i giovani artisti di Riga dediti a processi collocati al di fuori dei confini convenzionali dell’arte visiva: il suono, il web, il cityscape. Ci sono nuovi aspetti di cui tenere conto – la varietà e l’apertura delle realtà associative, la rapida crescita della rete e il nuovo gergo delle tecnologie dove, per esempio, “capturing”, “mixing” e “looping” sono elementi comuni sia del lessico di uno studente d’arte che del linguaggio di un musicista contemporaneo. Gli effetti del suono, l’estetica delle sottoculture e le idee dei nuovi media possono essere osservati in diversi progetti artistici: in “99% svaigs” (Linards Kulless, Voldemars Johansons), nel progetto di radio in rete “Rigasound” (www.xxx), nella produzione VJ degli F5 (Lîga Marcinkeviça, Ieva Rubeze, Martins Ratniks, Ervîns Broks, RenarsKrümiñß, Felikss Zîders), nella loro pubblicazione video “Time to Jack”, dedicata alla tape-art e alla house music, o nelle numerose citazioni di elementi di cultura urbana (break, hip-hop). Nello stesso modo, in lavori individuali come quello dei passanti aggrovigliati nel ritmo della musica in “Outskirts” di Katrina Neiburga o quello intriso di linguaggio industrial dei film di Ìirts Korps. L’interesse verso lo spazio al di fuori dell’arte ha causato non solo un cambiamento di strumenti e di estetica, ma anche l’adozione di nuovi metodi e soggetti, come dimostrato nel progetto “Teashroom” (aperto; Katrîna Neiburga, Péteris imelis). Un altrettanto spassoso e penetrante studio ha luogo anche nel successivo lavoro di Katrîna Neiburga, “What’s in the Girls’ Handbags”. Per altri aspetti, questi artisti sono uniti dal medium. Il DV con la sua principale caratteristica, la comodità (e convenienza) ha infine messo in atto il principio del medium come messaggio invece della qualità per se. “La Riga” e il gruppo del VKN differiscono dai predecessori e dalla scena video-cinematografica contemporanea a prevalenza narrativa. La nostalgica materialità del film, i suoi cliché negli effetti di luce e di colore sono esclusi dai loro fotogrammi. Le opere di questi artisti sono caratterizzate da una spesso concentrata qualità concettuale, in cui ciò che si sta filmando è più importante del come. Questo codice può essere individuato in alcuni video di Lîga Marcinkeviça, Kristîne Kursißa, Félikss Zîders, Renårs Krümiñß, Monika Pormale. Altre volte, tuttavia, le capacità formali del DV si svelano attraverso l’uso di computer o di attrezzature cinematografiche (“And Others” di Ieva Rubeze, i lavori di Ervins Broks e F5, “1 second-24 frames” di Renars Krümiñß, “Face to Face With the Enemy” di Dace DΩeriña). L’idea che sta dietro queste opere è probabilmente un aspetto caratteristico non solo della scuola, ma anche di un’intera generazione. La capacità di registrare rapidamente e facilmente permette loro di catturare il momento, ma li grava anche della necessità di un messaggio concettuale. A un estraneo sentir parlare di generazioni dentro “la Riga” potrebbe sembrare uno scherzo, ma pare che le generazioni del VKN possano essere separate solo da un anno o due. La fine degli anni novanta appare ora come storia leggendaria, l’invito della prima generazione (F5) alla 25ª Biennale di San Paolo – benché inatteso – sembra naturale. Se il confine tra uno studente e un artista sia tangibile, spetta al visitatore de “la Riga” giudicare. Ma c’è un conflitto generazionale in questo caso? Apparentemente no.
