VYTAUTAS PLETKUS. THE EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHY "FROM THE PAST THAT HASN'T YET PASSED“
Opening – on Friday, the 24th of February, at 6 p.m.
The Gallery of Photography, at the Exhibition Hall of the Klaipėda Culture Communication Centre, 1st floor (Didžioji Vandens str. 2, Klaipėda).
The exhibition is organized by the Klaipėda Branch of Lithuanian Art Photographers' Association.
V. Pletkus looks at the contemporary reality as if from the once lived but now already only remembered past. Therefore, the present in the works of V. Pletkus acquires a subjective image studded with relics of the past, related with various historical periods and contexts. In the photographs of V. Pletkus we can see ruins of former Soviet farms, desolated missile launch base area, Soviet monuments or a swastika drawn on a wall. Having lost their original purpose and functionality, former power symbols expose only coarse matter and the pointlessness of their existence. The same is also given away by the worn everyday objects: old buses, erodible swings or sold houses.
