Exhibition "Elephants tormented by idleness"

During the research process, the author of the contemporary art exhibition, Krišs Salmanis met with a wide range of library professionals – indexers, art curators, book historians and others. Having gained insight into its most remote repositories, the artist shows the library as a labyrinth of mirrors, with search tools developed by librarians guiding the visitor towards their destination.

The exhibition is part of the National Library of Latvia’s series of exhibitions in collaboration with contemporary artists.
