Residence Artists 2018
Zane Zlemeša (Latvia)
Host city: Helsinki
Zane Zlemeša draws, paints, makes comics and illustrations, and is now living between Latvia and Germany. Zlemeša currently studies illustration at the Art Academy of Leipzig.
Zlemeša’s project during the residency is a comic story about different modes of transportation. The story is inspired by transportation history and development – where travel time is decreasing but the ability to move more and larger loads is increasing. The main theme that the work addresses is mobility and how people deal with it, why we travel, why we want to move to Mars, what is journey and what is destination.
