Baiba Sisene


The main idea of my work is to explore the city that I call home, using materials and colours that connects with the idea of how home feels to me. My work consists of photo transfer prints, taken by me, in and around Cork city. I mostly use unwanted, found, and used materials, because I think that they already have a story to tell, and by reusing salvaged materials, I add an extra layer of emotional value to my work and pass on the ever-changing story of the material.

Artist Statement

In my latest body of work I’m exploring psychogeography based on familiar places and spaces around Cork city, closely focusing on details and textures that capture my interest and capture the overall feeling of Cork through my eyes. In a sense it’s my “Love letter to Cork”. In this work I pay special homage to terracotta or brick red colour, that echoes the distinctive architecture of my birthplace – ancient town in Latvia’s western region – Kuldiga. That type of red to me symbolises home, warmth, stability, and love.
