Kristerssen visits Riga within his Jevgeny Pastor art residence. He will take part at "Riga Poetry Map" project which is included in the official programme of "Rīga 2014". The artist is living in Riga for a month while he explores the city, gets to know the locals and searches new ideas for a unique art project made by Kristerssen himself. The project is to be presented in February, 2014.

"Riga Poetry Map" is a long-term project curated by "Orbīta" text-group. It started in 2012 in cooperation with "Rīga 2014" and, therefore, continues until November, 2014. "Poetry Map" unites poets and new media artists from Latvia and other European countries "under one roof".

The entrance is free of charge.
