‘The Streets where Foxes Hide’ is an exhibition of new mixed media works by Reinis Lismanis drawing on a myriad of sources including the artist’s everyday, urban environment and the studio, recent politics and conventions of aesthetics. The context of photography remains important to Lismanis’ practice; a medium arguably unique in the extent of its straddling of art and non-art spheres. The works presented bear the marks of their own creation, employing recycling, fragmentation and reflexivity to draw attention to their authorial, ontological and practical boundaries. In explicating margins, Lismanis aims to position his work within a wider context of politically and technologically conditioned activities.
Reinis Lismanis (1992) is a Latvian artist based in London, UK. He has previously held two solo exhibitions (Exhibition Hall Arsenals, Latvian National Museum of Art, Riga, 2017 and Brockley Gardens, London, 2020) and his works have been included in group shows internationally. He has published two monographs – ‘Trial and Error’ (Skinnerboox, 2019) and ‘T6031_T6061_T8001’ (NoRoutine Books, 2019). Lismanis studied at the University of Brighton.
