The exhibition “North by Northeast. The Deconstruction of the Pavilion”, on show at the “kim?” contemporary art centre until the 25th of April, presents works by artists Krišs Salmanis and Kaspars Podnieks originally exhibited at the 55th Venice Biennial. Later on, the exhibition will travel to Cēsis.

The exhibition in Riga has been created taking into consideration the specifics of the space available at “kim?”, presenting photographs from Kaspars Podnieks’ series “Rommelis' Dairy” displayed along with video pieces and an installation by Krišs Salmanis - a motorised animation of the “moving tree” exhibited at the Venice Biennale.

Latvia’s pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale was organised by the “kim?” contemporary art centre in collaboration with the New York art space “Art in General”. “North by Northeast” presented new artworks created specifically for the Venice Arsenale - large-scale photographs and videos by Kaspars Podnieks of farmers from Drusti portrayed on the background of their farms, and the installation by Krišs Salmanis - a rhythmically swinging tree. Unfolding the relationship between the artist and the real and constantly changing, man-made world, including  imaginary boundaries and centres of Europe, the artists focused on highlighting matters of identity, uncertainty and intermediaries.

The Latvian pavilion at the Venice Biennale closed with a record-breaking number of 222,620 visitors during a period of six months.
