THURSDAY REVIEW. VIDMINA STASIULYTĖ (OBJECT/INSTALLATION)
July 5 – 11, 2012
Opening – 5 July 2012, 6 p.m.
July 5, the Review Room of Vartai Gallery will introduce the latest Vidmina Stasiulytė’s installation Homo (2012) and her video with the same title created in collaboration with Šarūnas Akelaitis, Zbignevas Bartosevičius and Antanas Dombrovskis (2011) documenting the artist’s concept of the genome of the Universe. In both works, the Homo expresses the subjective assessment of globalisation and at the same time works as a metaphor embodying the ambitions of the humankind to conquer and destroy.
Vidmina Stasiulytė (born 1984) is a young artist who has graduated last year from Vilnius Academy of Arts with a Bachelor’s Degree in costume design. However, with her creative flight, uniqueness and implemented artistic projects, she can hardly be categorised as a designer. Her influences include the Universe, the phenomenon of coming and going, and the evolution of a human being.
The exhibition will be open until July 12.
Contemporary art gallery VARTAI organises open reviews of artworks which introduce the latest works of a selected artist and analyse the genre, development, uniqueness and potential of his or her artwork.
Through the Thursday reviews, VARTAI gallery aims to collect and publicise the latest news on the works of contemporary artists, provide a more exhaustive introduction of the authors, promote works of acclaimed artists and discover new promising names.
Artists wishing to submit their artwork for the reviews should contact the gallery by e mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal presentations of artworks can be arranged for art collectors any day of the week. Please, arrange your visit in advance by contacting VARTAI gallery on the phone (+370) 5 2122 949 or by e mail email@example.com.
