Excursion. The Sea is Me

At the exhibition, Diāna Tamane will display a series of watercolours completed over the past two years. These works are a step towards a body-based practice, where art grows out from life and vice versa – gently and naturally. Synchronised breathing and painting results in intuitive and flowing works that do not drain energy, but rather give it.
Primarily known for her photographic works so far, Tamane has drawn material from life itself before too, relying on family relationships and home archive material to create her works. This exhibition could be seen as a natural continuation or even deepening of the same interest: attention has shifted from the relationships surrounding the artist to her relationship with herself.
