DATE OF BIRTH
Ieva Rubeze is an artist of poetic videos and installations, who creates unforgettable, imaginative works of art. She started participating in exhibitions in 1996 while still studying at the Latvian Academy of Arts.
Her first videos, "And Others" (1999), "Medicine" (2000) and "Abracadabra" (2001), surprised viewers with their documentary, but at the same time lyrical, slowed-down message that gave an idea of in everyday events encrypted fairy tale.
I. Rubeze's work is characterized by a clear conceptual core of art works, the revelation of thought paradoxes, wit and special out of time radiation.
As a member of artists group “Famous Five“ she has represented the Republic of Latvia in the 25th International São Paulo Biennale (2002) and the 51st and 50th International Art Exhibitions of the Venice Biennale (2003 and 2005), in many Exhibitions of Latvian artists abroad, such as “Buket“ (2008) in Moscow, “Timewillshow“ (2008) in Flensburg and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Finland (2005), “Rīga dimd!“ (2010) in Rostock, and many other.
In 2015, Rubeze's sculptural work entitled “Ghost“ won the jury award in a competition hosted by the Foundation of Boris and Inara Teterev “Art in Public space“ and with the support of patrons was implemented in Rigas urban environment. It can be seen in Old Riga, Trokšņu Street.
In 2020, the artist's video work “Medicine“ was included in the collection of the Latvian National Museum of Art.
