Daiga Grantina

Four Sides of a Shadow

Daiga Grantina’s sculptures maneuver space in surprising ways. At Z33, the Latvian artist’s colourful assemblages evoke natural forms. Grand and fluid, fresh and otherworldly, her installations invite curiosity and exploration.

For her first institutional solo exhibition in Belgium, Daiga Grantina is showing newly-commissioned sculptures situated alongside earlier works. Using these as rhythmic elements, she will create a cycle of works spanning the five interconnected galleries of  exhibition wing ‘Vleugel 58’. Daiga Grantina’s sculptures are composed of simple materials – fabric, wood, string, metal, wax – with careful attention given to their sensory properties. The many uncovered skylights in the exhibition wing will become lenses of illumination for a choreography of hollow, hanging, resting forms.

Daiga Grantina (°1985, Latvia) lives and works in Paris. Grantina represented Latvia at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Her recent solo exhibitions include: Art Museum Riga Bourse, Riga, LV, 2022; Liebaert Projects, Kortrijk, BE, 2021; GAMeC, Bergamo, IT, 2021; Emalin, London, UK, 2021; New Museum, New York, US, 2020; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR, 2019. In 2025, Grantina will have a solo exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bern, CH.
