Welcome!

Since September Agita Šteinberga and Andris Maračkovskis, two Latvian artists, are realizing a community art project "Dowry chest" in RaumArs residency, Rauma.

This project covers several media - sculpture, installation, sound and video, projections and kinetic art.

”Dowry chest” project works as a connection of past, present and future. The project grows up from a hand made dowry chest made in 1907. It's a heritage that travelled with the artists from Varaklani to Rauma and was made to Šteinberga’s great great grandmother Anna Briška. Artists have the belief, that the most important things are humans and nature.  In the exhibition you can see the result of the “Hands” workshops as a sculpture and video/sound work also kinetic work inspired by Finnish nature. Artists looking for balance between mechanical, automatic and manual labor presence.

Artists has involved residents of Rauma and from different social groups and different ages to create objects, collect materials for installations and art works. They had “Hand” workshops in Rauma Freinetschool and Rauma Youth Workshop, Sinkokatu, Retirement home Jussila in collaboration with The Department of Teacher Education / Rauma University, also a few T.E.H.D.A.S. artists from Pori has been involved. Together in this project has been involved around 100 people from Rauma in hand casting – papier-mashe workshops.

They had “Hand” workshops in Rauma Freinet School and Rauma Town Youth Workshop, Retirement home Villa Jussoila in collaboration with University of Turku / Department of Teacher Education / Rauma Unit, also a few T.E.H.D.A.S. artists from Pori has been involved. Together in this project has been involved around 100 people from Rauma in hand casting–papier-mâché workshops.  Workshops introduced with plaster casting basics – participants got to know ledges in plaster hardening, how to get a negative form from the body and how to split forms. After every participant had filled his/her form with papier-mâché they got a very light positive paper form of their own hand.   ”Dowry chest” project works as a connection of past, present and future. The project grows up from a hand made dowry chest made in 1907.
