Justė Venclovaitė, instaliacija „Do not drop“, fragmentas,2012 m.
Juste Venclovaite (installation)
Opening - 2 February 2012, 6p.m.
Expozition duration - 2 – 9 February 2012
This Thursday, the Review Room of “Vartai “gallery hosts the installation “Do Not Drop” by Juste. Venclovaite.. The artist graduated from the studies of sculpture in 2010 and has been creating videos and installations using her own objects of sculpture and ready-mades (mass-produced or scavenged objects). In her works, the artist plays with the relationship between the visual expression and linguistic/social meaning of a certain object/subject by bestowing unusual material and expression on the selected object/subject and juxtaposing it with unconventional “neighbours”. The installation “Do Not Drop” introduced in the Review Room consists of a number of various tools for luring, trapping and keeping animals, but in this case, the visitors of the gallery are the lured animals while the artist tries to save them from capture.
Contemporary art gallery “Vartai“ organises open reviews of artworks. These practical one-hour Thursday events 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. Works submitted for reviews shall be available for viewing and purchase in the Review Room of “Vartai“ gallery. Personal presentations of artworks can be arranged for art collectors any day of the week.
