Daiga Grantina

Daiga Grantina

Paris-based Daiga Grantina (b. 1985 Riga, Latvia) speaks of her sculptural and installation work as an inversion of the Greek mythology Pygmalion, who falls in love with his own creation. Only that in her work, it is the body that becomes a sculpture yet retains the human need for pleasure, just like us. Her sculptural emanations, in gravity-defying suspension, are messy but poised, convoluted yet never abject, operating as knowledge does, at the moment of recognition, as an ongoing paradox. ​ Jo-ey Tang, LEAP magazine June ‘16
