  3. Artist's Statement and short bio:

    "I am interested in perception and possibility of different readings of the same work, I search for perceptive switch possibilities that could arise from juxtaposition of media, such as text, image and sound.

    I am also preoccupied with the issue of physicality and individual's physical identification in private/public space, that's why I often use myself as a source of material for work.

    As a conceptual sound artist I am primarily using my voice as a generator, heavily altering it and manipulating with a help of digital processing. I consider that type of vocal elements deconstruction as a form of expressing unpronounced speech - connecting it with my practice as a poet. As a visual artist I am often dealing with physicality, which is also a basis of my work as a sound artist."

    Conceptual justification: Sound approach – experimental/ drone/ noise/ambient as a form. As a conceptual artist primarily working with filtered recordings – usually her own voice (as a generator) or other conceptually-justified material (voice as a material is justified due to practice as a poet), heavily altering it and manipulating it with the help of digital processing. Considering voice processing to be a kind of deconstruction of vocal elements – a form of expressing unpronounced speech (as a metaphor for individual’s sub-consciousness) – connecting it with practice as a poet and the issue of physicality (preoccupied with in her practice as an artist, physicality also serves as a main basis for her sound art practice). Formally, technique is inspired by the sound poetry tradition of using the human voice, having roots in Dadaism and Futurism. Drone/noise (drone as an archaic form, ancient Near East etc.) form is a metaphor for an eternally-flowing development of “primary” matter versus human body development (at the macrocosmic/ microcosmic levels). Combining interest in postmodernism with its collage aesthetics and deconstruction practices and interest in Eastern philosophy with the concepts of nothingness and eternal development; for example - deconstruction/fragmentation practice (methodologically – granular synthesis as a digital processing) as a one of the metaphors reflecting concept of unsustainability of elements, as a non-existence of individual as an indivisible substance, but a chain of perceptive phenomena (David Hume – buddhism connection).

    As a visual artist Jelena had 8 solo exhibitions, including solo shows at Latvian Museum of Photography (2010) and Latvian Contemporary Art Centre (LMC) (2011), participated in numerous group exhibitions, festivals and projects in Latvia, Russia, USA, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Slovakia, Lithuania, Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Ukraine, South Korea, Canada and other countries. As a poet she participates in poetry festvals and has numerous publications. Jelena is the author of 3 books of poetry. First book "Transfers" (2013, in Russian and Latvian) was nominated for Latvian Annual Literary Award (LALIGABA), second book "Plasma" (2014) was published in Estonia in Estonian and English, third book "Greed" was published in 2019 and was nominated for Latvian Poetry Days Award. Jelena's poetry is translated into Latvian, English, Finnish, Polish, Estonian, Lithuanian, Swedish, Hungarian languages.

    As a sound artist started performing in 2012 – she performed at experimental music and sound art festivals and contributed to art projects – at Hamburger Bahnhof Museum for Contemporary Art (Berlin, Germany), BOZAR (Brussels, Belgium), Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid, Spain), Sound around Kaliningrad (Kaliningrad, Russia), Noise and Fury (Moscow, Russia), Poetronica (Moscow, Russia), Vilnius Noise Week (Vilnius, Lithuania), adventurous music festival Skaņu Mežs (Riga, Latvia), electronic music festival Art's Birthday (Stockholm, Sweden), Vienna Art Week (Vienna, Austria) etc.  She was as a guest composer at EMS Stockholm, WORM Rotterdam, etc.  

    Jelena has chosen experimental and drone/noise/ambient form of expression after disappointment with tonal music, as she did not find it creative enough as a form of expression (she was playing few instruments and had classical vocal training, as adolescent performed parts in children’s operas).

    She became interested in philosophical issues of sound self-sustainability (John Cage, La Monte Young etc.), historical origins of drone music (Ancient Eastern musical tradition), minimalism, especially mentioning inspiration from work of Eliane Radigue (an example of combining Eastern philosophy with the Western minimalist practices) and 20th century avant-garde and experimental music tradition. Jelena considers drone as a metaphor for eternal flowing development of “primordial”, “primary” matter on macrocosmic level as opposed to human body development’s physicality. Her sound is also formally inspired by sound poetry tradition of using human voice (dadaism, futurism practices) that is linking her sound work with her work as a poet.

    She combines interest in postmodernism with its collage aesthetics and deconstruction practices (obtained BA at Latvian Academy of Culture with work on postmodernism in audiovisual culture) and interest in Eastern philosophy with the concepts of nothingness and eternal development.
