Exhibition of Sound Art ‘Skan II’


The Botanical Garden and the area around it were chosen to become the platform for “SKAN II” as the idea is to link up the exhibition with Riga wooden architecture – metaphorically, by singling out such places with the help of sound, as well as literally, via artistic audio guides. The first stage of the exhibition (30.05.14–20.06.14) features Signe Liden (Norway), David Helbich (Germany), Pascal Broccolichi (France), Stefan Roigk (Germany), Ytske Blom & Thomas Rutgers (the Netherlands), Peter Bogers (the Netherlands) and Aernoudt Jacobs (Belgium). The exposition of the Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia is open Wednesday to Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Kalnicems Quarter exposition is on show Monday to Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
