Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992

Alise Tālberga and Maija Vītola LYING AWAKE

The concept of the exhibition has a purpose of stimulating philosophical contemplation about the world, which we encounter in early childhood, the world that is full of metaphors and life lessons - fairy tale kingdom.

The information locked in fairy tales is displayed through symbols – the artists invite to pay attention to our inner world and spiritual values that should be cherished and developed. The exhibition “Lying awake” is created as a space that holds the birth of artists` ideas, dreams materialize into jewellery pieces, visualizing the emotions and atmosphere of jewellery making process.

There is an opinion that the life of jewellery piece begins in the moment when the new owner starts to wear it. It is the moment a dream transforms into reality.
