Valdis Brože receives award “Lielais Kristaps”
Art gallery Putti congratulates Latvian contemporary jewellery designer Valdis Broze with receiving the award Lielais Kristaps together with the Estonian artist Anu-Laura Tuttelberg in the nomination “Best animation film artist” for the work on the animation film “It`s time”, directed by Ivo Briedis.
The work on this animation film is the inspiration behind the upcoming solo exhibition of Valdis Brože in Art gallery Putti – “White Pate”. It will be on display from November 6 until November 24, 2015. The animation film “It`s about time” tells a story about time, and the fact that it cannot be stopped. The main character is a man who is made of silver and mammoth bone. Time goes by and the old man has decided to leave the room he lives in, which is full of memories about the things he experienced once. When working on this project, the artist had new ideas, he had an urge to develop them and bring in new stories, which would be told through his jewellery.
Lielais Kristaps National Film Festival is a Latvian film festival. It is the highest prize awarded in the Latvian cinema.
