On February 17th at 4 PM, The exhibition “I Hope This Email Finds You Well” will be opened at MABOCA gallery Visuma Centrs 2. The opening will feature music by TV Maskava and Michael Holland

17.02. - 27.03.2024
The exhibition “I Hope This Email Finds You Well” is a classic line that begins official emails. It’s an introduction that announces of a new bill for a streaming service subscription, or perhaps a rare message unrelated to life’s administrative side.
Agnese Čemme continues the theme of mail space in this exhibition, referring to her recent exhibition “Mailroom” at Necessaire Space in Vienna in August 2023.
Real letters are rare already, but sometimes a good email appears, shedding light on a genuine page. Sometimes awaited letters disappear along the way, the package arrives battered, and then the content takes on a completely different form. A seven-year-old letter, reread today, can also take on a different form.
In the MABOCA gallery exhibition, Agnese creates 10 mailboxes for 10 invited artists. The starting point for this art project is an email to which the selected artists can respond with a real or electronic message to Visuma Centrs 2, thus creating an exhibition where drawing, text, sculpture and unpredictability interact.
Since the exhibition opens in mid-February, the theme is Valentine’s Day mail. It can include everything related to it. A love letter to another artist or to oneself. A snippet from a memory notebook, a heart-shaped box of chocolates (painting), etc., anything you’ve always wanted to give someone else but thought it was too cringe.
