'Hidden Pārdaugava' revealed in new exhibition

Domestic scenes from the everyday lives of the inhabitants of Pārdaugava, observations, traditions and little-known places – all these and more are on offer in the stories and photographs of Rīga residents living on the left bank of the Daugava, which are currently on display at the environmental exhibition "Hidden Pārdaugava" (Apslēptā Pārdaugava). 

The exhibition, which can be seen in the 'Jaunatnes dārzs' park (Lapu Street 24) in the Āgenskalns suburb of the Latvian capital, was created by researchers from the Institute of Literature, Folklore and Art of the University of Latvia with the idea of ​​creating a collection of contemporary urban Latvian folklore, LTV reported June 27.

Legends include the intriguing story of a man who sang 'O Sole Mio' at precisely the same time every day, according to researcher Ieva Vīvere, who told LTV the stories collected in the exhibition showed folklore and legend was alive and well in the residential suburbs and revealed how people living there view their neighbors, nature and the environment in which they live.

Even the building hosting the exhibition is part of the Pārdaugava story. Once a library, it fell into disrepair but is now revived as a creative and cultural center.
