Iveta Vaivode's (Latvija) Solo Exhibition „Lap” (Klēpis)


Two years ago Iveta Vaivode visited her grandmother Antoņina's village of Pilceni in Latgale to find the place she had painted in her mind when looking at the photographs from the grandmother's youth. While trying to find the last vestiges of her family in the village, the author speaks to people who once knew her grandmother. It is through Pilcene residents' stories that the photographer rediscovers a world long lost. Many of the people she meets continue to live in their very special memories about the past.
