Artglass™ at Interstice, contemporary art exhibition
From 23rd July till 14th August the visitors of Cesis Art festival 2011 were welcomed to visit the exhibition Ilgas of Alnis Stakle, the winner of the global contest Sony World Photography Award 2011.
Ilgas manor house, built in baroque style during the1890s, currently holds the study basis of Daugavpils University (Latvia). Located in the border zone between Latvia and Belarus it can be only visited with a special State Border Guard permission. “During my first visit at Ilgas, I have met 45 female students living there in extreme survival-reality-show-like conditions. I was amazed by the symbiosis of the interior of the ancient manor house and these young ladies. In fashion photography, films and many documentary photography projects similar combinations of the female body and old interior are exploited to create narrations where the combination of lust, sexuality and environment’s apparent menace is used as an instrument to draw viewers’ attention. My aim in photographing the Ilgas series was, by drawing on the characteristic language of documentary photography, to reveal the documentary narration and create images that can be interpreted by using a wide range of meaning constructions from the viewer’s past experience” reflects Alnis Stakle.
All of the photos were glazed with Artglass™ by GroGlass®. ”Thanks to Artglass™ the appearance of my photos was absolutely phenomenal. This certainly was the best design of the exhibition I have ever had. I had to convince a number of the visitors, that there is any glass in front of my pictures”, points out Alnis Stakle after the exhibition.

Groglass® sponsors talented and perspective photographer Nils Vilnis
Nils Vilnis explains his idea of making “short-exposure theory” photo session: “In human head thoughts fly in an endless stream, they have different manifestations and forms: memories, imagination, associations, feelings and beliefs. Our face is like a projector, but our thoughts are similar to the slides, which our imagination is changing at high speed. All these manifestations of the infinite consciousness can be caught, but they are not so easy to see and remember with the naked eye. If someone doubts, that is an ambiguous emotion, it is more likely like a concentration of many different emotions, but as that doubt is like a swing, emotions run around in circles.”
The author’s chosen method of photography became an integral part of underlining and highlighting the purity of the moment caught. As a result, people got almost supernatural image that moved them somewhere between heaven and earth.
The exibiton Purgatory took place from 2nd to 22nd June, 2011 in Riga. All of the photographs in the exibition were framed with Artglass™ by GroGlass®.
