Zanda Puče

 

Esmu māksliniece no Siguldas, savos mākslas projektos savienoju laikmetīgās mākslas pieeju un mūsdienīgo tehnoloģiju izmantojumu ar personisku interesi par vēsturi un pagātnes ietiekšanos mūsdienās. Es pievēršos konkrētām parādībām un liecībām, ne tikai tās fiksējot un atspoguļojot, bet arī radot dzīvu, iekļaujošu piederības izjūtu, notikumu, kas ļauj cilvēkam izjust sevi kā vietas un laika sastāvdaļu. Savos mākslas darbos es balstos atmiņu stāstos, dzimtas vērtībās, dabas bagātībās, izmantojot fotogrāfijas, dokumentus un vēsturiskus priekšmetus. Mani sociāli un ekoloģiski orientētie mākslas projekti vienmēr aug no manām personiskajām saknēm - dzimtas, dzīves vietas, novada, atklājot plašāku, vispārinātu skatījumu uz pasauli. Es cienu manas saknes, mākslinieciski vispārinu šo mantojumu un aktīvi attiecos pret šodienas pasauli, kuru cenšos padziļināt, darot cilvēkus redzīgākus un ļaujot spēcīgāk izjust savu saikni ar dabas un kultūras mantojumu.

I am an artist from Sigulda, in my art projects I combine the approach of contemporary art with the use of modern technology along my personal interest in history and the influence of the past nowadays. I focus on specific phenomena and testimonies, not only by capturing and reflecting them, but also by creating a living, inclusive sense of belonging, an event that allows one to feel like a part of that space in a specific time. I create my works of art by using my memory, family values and nature. I do this through photographs, documents and historical objects. My socially and ecologically oriented art projects always stem from my personal roots – my family tree, my home, my county, revealing a broader and more generalized view of the world. I respect my roots, artistically generalizing this heritage and actively relate to today's world, which I try to open up, making people more aware and allowing them to feel a strong connection with the natural and cultural heritage.
