and suddenly it all blossoms: 2nd Riga International Biennial
Library Shelf Location 16.RIGA
Publication Date 2021

RIBOCA2, and suddenly it all blossoms, was proposed as an alternative to the torrent of hopeless narratives, taking the notion of 're-en­chantment' as a frame for building desirable presents and futures. The exhibition, which opened for only 3 weeks in 2020 with 46 international artists, sought to reflect on the end of an epoch, investigating new paths of existence with space for other voices, sensitivities and relationships. The biennial was hit by the rapid spread of COVID-19 just a few weeks before the opening, and thus Chief curator Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel decided to transform the exhibition into a film set, reimagining the biennial as a feature film.This limited edition publication is a wander through the exhibition and a supplement to the film, bringing together artists’ concepts, COVID imposed curatorial changes, and thoughts on themes central to the Biennial with full page installation shots, alongside excerpts from the Public Programmes series of talks and conversations
