25. oktobrī plkst. 20.00 ielūdzam uz Aleksisas Bleikas skaņu plates prezentāciju un tikšanos ar īpašiem viesiem Kaņepes Kultūras centrā, Skolas ielā 15.

Prezentācijas laikā Bleika spēlēs skaņuplati un uzsāks sarunu ar mākslas vēsturnieci, kuratori un Latvijas Nacionālā mākslas muzeja krājuma darba vadītāju Dainu Auziņu, kuratoru Kasparu Vanagu un mākslinieci Sandru Krastiņu, kuras gleznu Bleika pētījusi un pārtulkojusi savā mākslinieciskajā valodā skaņuplatē. Sarunā aicināta piedalīties arī publika.

Darbā "viņa, kurai nav kroņa" Bleika pārskata un no jauna interpretē Latvijas Nacionālā mākslas muzeja kolekciju no 1945.-90. gada un tajā trūkstošos sieviešu darbus. Viņa pēta, kā sievietes tika attēlotas saistībā un pretstatā ar sociālistiskā reālisma doktrīnas ideoloģisko lomu. Piedaloties skaņu māksliniekam ELVI (Elviss Zants), ierakstā dzirdamas Bleikas balss modulācijas. "viņa, kurai nav kroņa" soniski pēta (ne)redzamības un cenzūras jautājumus saistībā ar dzimti, pašizpausmi, seksualitāti un nacionālajiem naratīviem.

Aleksisas Bleikas darbs "viņa, kurai nav kroņa", sastāv no divām daļām – no LP skaņuplates un tiešraides.

Bleikai ir maģistra grāds tēlotājmākslā Pīta Svarta Institūtā Roterdamā (2007). Viņa bijusi rezidējoša māksliniece Delfina fondā Londonā (2016), Jana van Eika Akadēmijā Māstrihtā (2014–15) un Fondazione Antonio Ratti’s CSAV – mākslinieku pētījumu laboratorijā, kuru vada Ivonna Rainere (Yvonne Rainer) (2015).

We cordially invite you to join the LP vinyl record 'she who has no crown' presentation – RIBOCA1 commisioned artwork – with the presence of its author Alexis Blake and special guests. The event will take place on 25 October at 8pm at Kanepes Kulturas centrs (Skolas iela 15).

During this launch, Blake will play the LP record and open up a conversation with art historian, curator and Latvian National Museum of Art’s collection manager Daina Auziņa, curator Kaspars Vanags and artist Sandra Krastiņa, who’s painting Blake examined and translated into her own artistic language on the LP. The public is also invited to contribute to the discussion.

In she who has no crown, the Latvian National Museum of Art’s collection from 1945–90 (the time of the Soviet Union occupation in Latvia) and works by women absent from this collection, are examined and re-imagined by Blake. She investigates how women were depicted as subjects commensurate with and in opposition to the ideological rule of the Socialist Realism doctrine. she who has no crown seeks to fill the public and private space with the sound of alternative narratives by sonically exploring questions of (in)visibility and censorship in relation to gender, self-expression, sexuality and national narratives. Latvian sound artist, ELVI (Elviss Zants) created the sound design on the LP using the recorded voice of Blake; no synthesis or instruments were used other than modulation of the recorded voice. The absence of the body and the absence of multiple narratives and subjectivities both in (art) history and within contemporary times, especially when it comes to gender and sexuality.

Commissioned by the 1st Riga Biennial, she who has no crown is a work in two parts: an LP record and a live broadcast performance

Blake received an MA in Fine Art from Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam (2007). She was an artist-in-residence at the Delfina Foundation, London (2016), Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht (2014–15) and Fondazione Antonio Ratti’s CSAV – Artists Research Laboratory, led by Yvonne Rainer (2015).
