Exhibition “Fluff and Feathers” (Pūkas un spalvas)
at the Riga Porcelain Museum from 4 February to 3 April 2022
This exhibition reflects the creative partnership forged over several years by two talented artists, Tatjana Krivenkova and Jekaterina Sazonova. Each of them has had her own journey into porcelain art. The exhibition presents new works created according to a common concept while dividing up the tasks to be performed. Jekaterina’s freehand vessels blend simplicity with refinement, while Tatjana’s Krivenkovas translucent paint strokes on the vessel’s surface adds playfulness to the porcelain.
The artistic duo has also appeared at earlier joint exhibition combining ceramics and depictive art. Tatjana’s lithograph series “Asni” (Shoots) and Jekaterina’s porcelain and stone mass works were displayed in 2014 at the exhibition “Mošanās” (Awakening) at the Riga Porcelain Museum.
Tatjana Krivenkova is a graduate of the Art Academy of Latvia, a student in Induis Zariņš’s monumental painting masterclass. She earned her master’s degree in Guntars Sietiņš’s Graphics Department. She is mainly engaged in painting, utilising a range of surface materials, and she also creates forms and performs panting on porcelain, skills she learned as a guest artist at the St. Petersburg Imperial Porcelain Factory’s artistic laboratory.
Jekaterina Sazonova is a graduate of the Stiglitz Academy of Art and Industry in St. Petersburg and has worked as an artist-sculptor at the St. Petersburg Imperial Porcelain Factory’s artistic laboratory. She has designed forms for a number of vessels and service sets which are still in production. In recent times she had lived and worked in Latvia, creating artworks in a variety of ceramic materials.
