The exhibition Vanishing Point shows photographs of the emerging artists Laura Igoveņa (1991) and Ģirts Reiniks (1987), summing up the material of several years. These are works that are open for the interpretation of viewers. Thematically both authors are interested in the fringes of forests, streaks of sky, deserted beaches and anonymous people, though in their case, it is not possible to talk about some previously defined narrative, but instead of an intuitive experience of the surrounding environment and its projection through a photographic image.
The geometric term ‘vanishing point’ or the intersection relates to the creative work of two partners both in photography and life, meeting at an imaginary horizon like two vectors. They merge through the act of looking, giving the impression of a simulation of escape – mental withdrawal from the real time and space.
Laura Igoveņa (1991) has graduated from Janis Rozentāls Riga Art High School and this year is graduating from the Art Academy of Latvia, whereas Ģirts Reiniks (1987) has graduated from the University of Latvia and is a graphic designer. He is also a music producer and event organizer at the electronic music platform RIOT.
