Project “Communication”

Exhibition curator Jolita Zykutė

Four female Lithuanian artists were exploring theme of communication. Authors were following their individual path of creativity and research; using various means of expression but artworks of all of them are united by enormous desire and yearning that relations among people were alive and sensitive. Artists talk out their thoughts through their artworks and now only reaction of audience can show if the communication was successful.

Participating artists thoughts about the project

Inga Dargužytė

Communication is a non-stop and integral process. Human being in his daily life uses a lot of forms of various communications. Using special system of symbols I create cycle of works “M&F communication” where I am revealing exchange of information among two individuals – male and female. It is peculiar dialogue between man and a woman. This cycle of artworks is to be exhibited not as usualy paintings hanging on the walls but in space. In this way paintings become nonverbal (although not “speechless”) signs that indicate various boundaries and zones of male and female personal and professional communication that could be visited by exhibition audience. One more thread of communication in artworks of this cycle could be seen as a dialogue between line and figure, black and white colors, irony and drama. That is how the always communicating world of male and female looks like…

Edita Suchockytė

World of today is occupied by all-mighty COMMUNICATION… Business communication, art communication, local communication, international communication…  It is disappointing that under this emotionless, cold word we cover those things which keep value and urgency in all times such as relation with oneself, friendship, relationships with other people. But is it really possible to put everything into one shelf that has a label “Communication”?

My artworks in context of modern world risk to look a bit old fashioned, but maybe they will emphasize that existing precipice between Her Majesty Communication so much glorified in the XXI century and Human being connection to other Human being. This exhibition is my personal protest against alienation. Let us enjoy Being Together, Dates, Meetings, Friendship and Love.

Jolanta Sereikaitė

My graphic is dependant on poetry rules – spontanious fantazy, images coming from subconsiousness, rhythm and structure. I unite image and word. That is why there come notes, thoughts, and images become symbols, codes for words. After all, in image you can condense wider and biger story, wich can not be expressed only with words. Words here exist as possibility to highlight ideas, although I do not consider them as direct titles for paintings or declarations. I try to knock on the doors of personal experience of every single viewer. It is interesting for me how he can “read” my artwork, what he will see there, what will touch him. I do not aim to announce any truths with my artworks, but wish to express that specific poetic thinking which is inherent for all of us and because of wich communication becomes more delicate and subtle.

Neringa Žukauskaitė

Today you can not imagine life without modern means of communication – telephone, mobile phone, internet and etc. They give endless possibilities and at the same time involve you to constant communication.  We are happy that because of them we can keep contact with family and friends but they enforce communication with alien and anonymous people too. We can be reached at any time and any place. When you are constantly open for communication and accept everything that is coming and seep out into you, that becomes dangerous for your inside world. Not being able to limit enourmous amounts of information and communication, we get a feeling of being burnt out. We are filled with not what we really are, but with content of outside world.

When I think about it, I wish to go to simplicity – to direct and live connections where you can feel other person, nature and inside world. I miss relations that are not polluted with any means of communication and hi-tech discoveries. In this cycle of works I reject all of that and keep only facture of wood, language of emotional states, gentle colours and earthy tones. In this way communication is born between human being and nature, viewer and my prints.

Jurate Rekeviciute exhibition “Comment. Like”

May 25 – June 15, 2011

Opening at 7 p.m. on June 25th, 2011

This   exhibition was inspired by virtual communication. Artist Jurate Rekeviciute has been observing virtual reality for a while and then details of virtual communication were taken to her paintings. Sometimes funny details but still challenging deeper thoughts about situations when our open feelings expressed in Facebook or comments become public and loose their value.

April 28 – May 24, 2011 gallery “Actus magnus” will present an exhibition of young Lithuanian artists Kristina Norvilaite and Martynas Gaubas “I saw a rabbit in white garden” in Krebsen gallery, Copenhagen.

The exhibition “I Saw a Rabbit in a White Garden” is organized by galleries “Krebsen” and Actus magnus” (Lithuania) in cooperation with the Lithuanian cultural attaché in Denmark, Iceland and Norway, with the support from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.

Kristina Norvilaite is a print artist working with linocut technique. Among other paintings she will be showing series of artworks “Have you seen it?” that was sucessfully presented in a travelling exhibition through several Lithuanian towns and “Salling” gallery in Denmark. Huge artworks (1,2 x 0,6m) on cardboard are printed by hands. Kristina Norvilaite is exploring richness and variety of red colour in these artworks. She creates a visual story of ornaments travelling from one painting into another and in this way shows how deep and multitasking ornament can be, provokes thoughts about importance of small details in our daily life. In triptych “Girls at the sea” artist forgets the theme of ornaments and reveals herself as figurative art creator making impression with   black-white esthetics.

Martynas Gaubas presents paintings, series of miniature drawings and small size sculptures. Artist is famous for his ironical atittude to the world. He is a master to notice weaknesses of human nature, shows it as if observing through a reading-glass and is gently laughing at it. At the same time works of Martynas Gaubas declare huge joy of life although the world seems to be not a perfect one. In his cycle of miniature drawings artist presents portraits of various people. Although in academic sense we are used to a thought that portraits should be showing outstanding personalities, Martynas Gaubas is smiling at our expectations and presents totally different heroes – strange characters who are hypnotising our eyes and minds with their peculiarities.

Kristina Norvilaite is member of Lithuanian Artists’ Association, has graduated Vilnius Art Academy. She made more than 10 personal exhibitions and participated in more than half hundred group exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. In 2010 Kristina Norvilaite was awarded with Vilnius Mayor Young Artist Scholarship and Lithuanian State Artist scholarship. In 2010 she received honorary mentioning-gratitude “For Purity of Esthetic Languge” in Lithuanian print artists’ exhibition “Estampas’09”. In 2008 she was awarded with diploma in “Estampas’07” exhibition.

Martynas Gaubas studied art and design speciality in Siauliai University. Since the year 2000 he has made more than 20 personal exhibitions, participated in about 70 group exhibitions where he was showing prints, paintings and sculptures. Martynas Gaubas is member of Lithuanian Artists’ Association, member of international „Sculpture network“. Artist is mostly working as a sculpture. He has created more 500 sculptures in wood, bronze, stone or steal that are from 2 cm to 12 m high. He was awarded Siauliai municipality scholarship “For the Young Artist” in 2006.

Artist creates big number of those forms and then starts making various compositions. The unique atmosphere of the gallery located in the heart of oldtown is adding an extra value to the experience of the exhibition.

Opening at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 24th, 2011.

“Perigee” – a word used in our daily language not so often. For many people it is quite unfamiliar word. What does it mean?Perigee – is a point of a planet when it is closestto the Earth. The latest perigee of the Moon could be experienced March 19, 2011 when the Moon was closest to the Earth during the last 19 years. There were people promising apocallyptical consequences to the Earth but artist Jolanta Sereikaite seems to have totally opposite aproach. She is saying the Full moon is good for creativity, for arts, it stimulates our creative powers. So the exhibition is talking about those issues.
