PHOTO: A modern exhibition about the writer Anšlavs Eglīte has been opened in Inciems

On the opening day, the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Latvia Nauris Puntulis, addressing the audience, invited to reflect on what today’s young man is and what it was like several decades ago. It is possible that some of the answers will be found in this exhibition. In his turn, the chairman of Sigulda municipality council Uģis Mitrevics emphasized that culture as a sphere serves the sense of community of people and that this community is a strong identity of the parishes united in Sigulda region.

The design of the interactive exhibition was created by “H2E”, and it overturns the grammar of the Latvian language in a somewhat provocative way, as the entire text is written in lower case. “Yes We Can”, “Reverie trading group” and “RG Group” are also involved in the implementation of the exhibition. The information was gathered by the Turaida Museum Reserve, as well as other literary and cultural history professionals.

Creating an exposition about the writer’s personality and work, an interactive book has been created, which gives visitors the opportunity to “talk” with Anšlavs Eglīte. On the 3rd floor, in the small living room, there is an Anslav reading room. Almost all of the writer’s work has been collected in the reading room, however, some books are still missing, so residents are invited to get involved in supplementing the reading room and donate Anšlavs Eglītis’ books.
The exhibition is located in the Inciems Tower and admission is free, but subject to epidemiological safety requirements, visits must be booked in advance on the website www.anslavseglitis.lvby writing to the e-mail address [email protected] or in the mobile app “Bookla”.

To visit the exhibition, an interoperable Covid-19 certificate must be presented, confirming that the visitor has completed a full course of vaccination against Covid-19 or has been ill with Covid-19 in the last 6 months, and an identity document.
