“see. view”

Photo installation.

“I’m walking at the seaside; the sounds, colors, smells and temper, always different, always changing, affects me. I’m meditative, exhilarated, reflective, creative. It makes me feel how comforting the change could be. “see. view” shows a very short distance of the Roja beach, keeping the horizon line as a certainty otherwise contemplating the ever-changing seascape and the endless possibilities how to look at it.”

Elina Ruka lives and works in Latvia. Her artistic interest centres upon examining the human relationship with water and photographic medium, questioning the knowledge on both subjects and juggling between reality and illusion. Ruka is also interested in culture, especially linguistic and symbolic aspects, looking at details that bring us together or make it difficult to communicate.”
