Tendency Towards are pleased to present Studio Visit, an exhibition of newly commissioned nomadic sculptures by 3/8.
The exhibition marks the first occasion the Latvian collective will present work in the UK.
Studio Visit is also the first in a series of exhibitions and events being hosted by Tendency Towards through till the end of May
in their new temporary base located at 42 St Andrew Street, Aberdeen.
3/8 explore approaches of mutual cooperation and exchange as art production methods in their projects, often sprung on by
the members geographical separation. Using a variety of media and file sharing platforms, communication networks and cloud
based production applications such as Google Docs, Google Drive, Facebook Messenger, as well as postal services, the
members simultaneously add and subtract each other's interactions, working in an often unpredictable manner to create works
that emphasise reaction.
For Studio Visit, the group has utilised postal services and public transport to create a series of box “studios” that have been
transported throughout Europe. Acting as a meeting point, the boxes provide a space where each member of the collective has
had to react to the situation that has been constructed inside by others, choosing to respect, disrespect, agree or disagree with
the opinions and decisions held within. How much and what should be added or removed is a personal decision.
Arriving in Aberdeen by courier the exhibition will act as the final stage of the exchange process where the studios are presented
as both object and nomadic spaces - left open to be peered into.
Active since 2014, 3/8 is an artist group formed by Latvian artists Jānis Dzirnieks, Jānis Krauklis, Rihards Rusmanis and
Kristiāna Marija Sproģe. Recent exhibitions include Title Doesn't Matter (2017) at the Latvian National Museum of Art, Rīga
and solo shows Vacation (2017), LOW Gallery, Rīga and x kg (2016) at Four To Seven, Rīga.
