"Spoku" Ieva Rubreze
[Lv] Pastaiga pa Vecrigu un uzduroties šai spoku statujai niša pie Zviedru vartiem ir divaina satikšanas. Škiet, ka ta ir dala no publiskas makslas programmas, bet ne paša gabala skaidrojums. Tas atgadina par visiem karaviriem, kuri ir izgajuši cauri šiem vartiem, un citiem, kas gadsimtu gaita klainojuši pa pilsetu. Atrodas blakus Zviedru vartiem, ta bija interesanta skulptura un parsteidzoši Šo spokaino Ievas Rubezes skulpturu Spoku var atrast pie Zviedru vartiem Ve-criga. Skulptura ir pavisam jauna. Tas tika atklats 2015. gada. Makslas priekšmets veidots bronzas liešanas tehnika. “Cik daudz noslepumainu vestijumu var saturet objekts, kas parklats ar audumu un tapec nav redzams? Makslas objekts ir sava veida piemineklis "skulpturai neeksponetai" un tradicionalajai spoku tehnikai - slepšanai zem auduma," stasta maksliniece Ieva Rubeze.
"The Ghost" Ieva Rubreze
[EN] Walking around Riga's Old Town and stumbling upon this ghost statue in an alcove near the Swedish Gate is a strange encounter. It looks like it's part of a public art program, but not an explanation of the piece itself. It reminds you of all the soldiers who have passed through this gate and others who have roamed the city over the centuries. Located next to the Swedish Gate, it was an interesting sculpture and surprising. This spooky Ghost sculpture by Ieva Rubeze can be found near the Swedish Gate in Riga Old Town. The sculpture is quite new. It was unveiled in 2015. The art object is created in bronze casting technique. “How many mysterious messages can an object, covered with cloth and therefore invisible, contain? The art object is a kind of monument to the "sculpture unexposed" and the traditional ghost technique - hiding under the cloth," says the artist Ieva Rubeze.
