Luīze Rukšāne (Latvia) is a young artist currently studying BA Visual Communication at the Art Academy of Latvia. Participating in group and solo exhibitions since 2017, in 2019 she was one of 7 Latvian artists represented in Jeune Création Europeenne Young Artist Biennale. In her work she is looking for ways to express her love towards imperfect perfections of being human. Reflecting on concepts of growing and growing-up, childhood memories and trauma. The tragic, the funny, the teenage. Super serious yet naive when reflecting at what occured. During the residency at Rupert, Luīze will continue developing works for a solo exhibition in Riga next year. Focusing on ideas of recurrence and personal progression in the process of repetition.
