  1. In 2014, I was invited to participate as an art critic in IV Artishok Biennale. The Biennale had an exhibition format
    combining ten artists creating new pieces for the Biennale and ten critics writing about each of the artworks on
    display. At the time I was living in the UK and decided that rather than reviewing the works myself bringing in the
    perspective of British art professionals might be both interesting and beneficial. The dots dividing the English and
    Latvian texts are ciphers of my interpretation of the artworks and critiques.

    The idea was devised together with artist P Mulligan.
