Dawn is art piece on the borderline between reality and dreaming, the immediate and the eternal. It is a poem about our eternal search for meaning, our place in the world and the sublime.
Dawn is a triptych and is based on the symbolism of a triangle where three parts create strong balance and one whole. The installation discusses the questions around Body/ Mind/ Soul, Past/ Present/ Future and Birth/ Life/ Death. In this way the art piece creates an almost sacral state of reflection and inspiration and invites audience to a poetic, dynamic and contemplative experience.
Dawn is collaboration with well-known Latvian composer Peteris Vasks and Norwegian dance company Nagelhus Schia Productions.
