A book about Krišs Salmanis by Santa Mičule is published in the series “Studija Library”.
The art of Krišs Salmanis observes us quietly. Everyday paradoxes serve as allegories of existential situations, which both estrange the viewer, and give an insight into a calm buddhist view of the world. The art of Krišs Salmanis also quietly observes our own observations, not bothering us with trivial questions. It is the poetry of masking tape and post-it notes with mathematical ambitions: to measure the volume of infinite space, for example, or to work out the percentage of the inescapable presence of simplicity within the complexities of life.Santa Mičule
