Creative group "Action Society"

“Action Society” was established in 1994 by a group of artists who shared a common fascination for a possibility to create threshold situations using the play of light and dark as means of expression.They are Solvita Zarina, Uldis Balga and Agris Dzilna.

The beginning of their activities in making fire-sculpture can be traced back to performance type actions, where fire was chosen as one of the elements of the whole of an action. Nevertheless, in a couple of years, and especially after the European championship in fire-sculpting in 1998, the group turned to fire-sculpture with more confidence. Fire-sculpture became the main area of their creative work.

The sense of unity with other artists of similar creative thinking from Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Austria, Germany, and France has been essential in making this choice in favour of a new medium.
