From July 17 to August 29, 2020 in collaboration with the VV Foundation the ISSP Gallery (Marijas 13 k-3, Berga Bazars, Riga) hosted a solo exhibition “Love Re-search” by Latvian artist Annemarija Gulbe. It featured a series of photographs created over four years, capturing private moments from the author’s peers.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
In her series “Love Re-search” Latvian artist Annemarija Gulbe captures intimate and revealing situations between her friends and acquaintances. Wandering through Riga nightlife as a distant observer, she attempts to understand what it means to be in love as she has never experienced the feeling herself. Through the series of work Annemarija attempts to find an answer to the never ending question – what is love and how can one recognize it?
