Miks Mitrēvics “Seven Thursdays”

 

Most of the time when making decisions people unknowingly use already known and proven solutions which sooner or later imposes certain limits on our imagination and solutions become predictable. Seven Thursdays in a row I will conduct a draw; hence the selection of works and the setting of the exhibition will be determined by the factor of randomness. At the evening of the first Thursday there will be determined six works from the total of 44 work designs. Following the realization plan of each work, during the week there will be created an exhibition of six works, which will be on display for one day – on Thursday. At the end of every Thursday I will conduct the next draw, which will determine the combination for the next week’s exhibition. This routine will be repeated for 7 Thursdays in a row, resulting in an opening of the exhibition on the last Thursday.
