The installation Subject/Object, or Riga structures, are two large-format sculptures that were built with the participation of students and colleagues of the world-famous American architect John Hejduk at a special event in 1987 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The 2021 published edition in Latvia "Johns Hejduks: Projekts Rīga" started the second path of this event, the new production Projekts Rīga - Subjekts/Objekts, which will be used in various places and situations in Latvia as an 'environmental project'. It is planned to start the traveling exhibition of Subject/Object sculptures in the courtyard of Rundāle Palace, and then in Rīga, Sāti and elsewhere. Both structures will be designed with the help of students using materials and modular components that allow for repeated assembly, disassembly, packing, moving and installation. The traveling installation would take the form of temporary exhibitions; it would be both publicly available and viewable remotely. In this production, both the troupe of characters, the actors and the spectators come on stage, so that everyone can live in the spatially unstable and perceptually changing conditions of the game.

The curators of the project are the ARHITEKSTI Foundation in cooperation with the Faculty of Architecture and Design (RISEBA FAD) of the RISEBA University of Business, Art and Technology. The ARCHITEKSTI Foundation is public benefit organization aiming to highlight historically significant architectural ideas that promote intellectual continuity and create a sustainable environment for new dialogue.
