My artistic path is a research, search and tests in emancipating horizontal relationships between human & nature, individual & society. In Latvian folk songs people always sing/speak TO animals, plants, sun, sky, earth, natural deities or sometimes AS, but never ABOUT. That is not just a creative choice, but an example of a horizontal type of relationality to the other. I wish to experiment with that non-objectifying way of speaking, being, creating in a visual arts & contemporary culture context.
My name is Indra Gleizde (LV, based in Rotterdam), I am a lens-based artist and community-engaged collaborative art project producer. Writing, too, is an important means for communicating my findings and methods, contextualising how I came to certain ideas or visual interpretations. My work finds an audience through publications, exhibitions, presentation performances and workshops.
