Was born in 1975 and lives and works in Latvia. He’s interested in the urban environment as a phenomenon, which in its very basis is the product of social experience. The existence of any city is based on the deepest basic needs of humans – to be in warmth, safety and among your own community. Today, however cities have become immeasurable agglomerations, in the social and architectonic structures of which humans have found not only shelter and safety, but also confusion, alienation and loneliness.
Among his most significant exhibitions of recent years the following deserve mention – “Biežņa”, Latvian National Museum of Art, Riga, 2013, “Vienkāršs stāsts”, Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art, Riga, 2012 and “Not Even Something”, the Art Centre “Bozar”, Brussels, 2012.
