The Spring of 2019 comes with the annual performance of a botanist in the heart of Rigan. In anticipation of the grasshopper’s song, it has been invented and dreamed all kinds of things, but now when it’s summer and Latvia’s 101, Botanist is ready for both the herbarium, the ikebana and insect collection. About 27 grasshopper species live in Latvia alone. Herbarium notebooks are ready, the ikebana during winter season is groomed and cherished and the butterfly catching net for insects is already put next to the bag and boots.

The foundation of the exhibition is composed of four paintings that are a cycle of Lemon. Simultaneously there will be ceramic image of a girl and a number of small-size paintings, in which Koļcov’s trust is seen in the same way as in his clear eyes, where neither the pain nor frustration can be seen.
