Jurmala

Laura Horelli

Collaboration with Agnese Luse, Angela Melitopoulos, Eléonore de Montesquiou, Tanja Ostojic, Meggie Schneider,  Isabell Spengler, Gitte Villesen.

In 2010, the Latvian curator Agnese Luse invited nine Berlin-based female artists to Riga. After five days of lively discussions, they decided to spend the last Sunday of their visit at the beach in Jūrmala. The piece owes its composition to the idea of the refrain: each of the artists created a soundtrack to a one-minute film fragment.
