Le Solitaire” exhibition by the Latvian artist Santa France (Sunta Frunce) will open on Thursday, July 27 at 5 pm at the RIXC Gallery, Lenču iela 2 in Riga.

Le Solitaire (French for patience, loner) is a single player card game, played by arranging cards in a particular order. Digital illustrations, animations, and net artworks displayed in the solo show by Santa France, titled after the card game, have been produced in communication with a computer, creating and arranging 3D objects in compositions by principles known only to the author herself. Through designing glossy interiors and creating still life compositions, answers are sought to the question “how to be alone?” – to work in solitude, to be self-sufficient, how to compensate the lack of human contact by browsing the internet and using one’s inner resources. The works displayed in the “Le Solitaire” exhibition are created by the artist after graduating New Media Art program in Liepaja University (2017).

Exhibition curators – Rasa Šmite and Raitis Šmits.
