Kristians Brekte’s solo exhibition “Dead Ain’t Gone” (“Beigts nav miris”) is on show at the gallery “Alma” from the 22nd of November to the 9th of January, 2015. We offer you a chance to see the exhibition’s opening ceremony on the 20th of November.
Kristians Brekte’s creative work has always been saturated with vivid characters of imagination along with familiar symbols of popular culture, art and religion. In the hands of Brekte bones, crosses, and drips of black China ink become attributes of a game, which ultimately results in a victory over the common notions of life. Rather than having an interest in changing the world, fleeing from the human deviations, the artist perceives them with a sense of ease and self-irony. The exhibition consists of self-portraits, sculpturesque ready-made objects, and photographs that tell the story of past experiences.
The publishing house “Neputns” has just recently released Kristians Brekte’s catalogue. It is the first ever edition dedicated solely to the artist’s oeuvre, released on his thirty-third birthday.
