Why war? Even though we do not want to think about it, it is here already. Not only on battlefields and at refugee camps, in Ukraine and Syria, on TV and social networks. According to Paul Virilio, there is a global civil war going on, for citizens are targeted and borders disregarded. A city became a battlefield in which living targets and living time bombs are moving around. This asymmetrical trans-political war affects everyone, and the imaginary peace of a small country is not a salvation promise.
Elena Grudzinskaitė' "SITE-SPECIFIC" at KKKC Exhibition Hall
Personal exhibition "Site-specific" of artist Elena Grudzinskaitė runs from October 14 till November 13, 2016 at KKKC Exhibition Hall. Opening on 5 p.m. 14th October 2016 (Friday).
Elena Grudzinskaitė belongs to a younger generation of Lithuanian graphic artists. In her artistic practice, Elena analyses the relationship between an individual and the territory, the limits and fragility of space and time parameters, human impact on physical changes in the environment, and the notion of landscape as “levitating” between culture and nature, between reality and fiction. Her work is marked by distinctive transformation of images. In their making, Elena Grudzinskaitė uses traditional graphic techniques as a tool for examining broader contexts, including surfaces and the meanings behind them. In the exposition space, the author normally combines her large-format graphic prints with natural and synthetic objects, artifacts, and real-life elements to create an illusory correlation between reality and artificiality.
