Exhibition Opening: Connections by Zivile Minkute
An exhibition of works entitled “Connections” by an emerging artist Živilė Minkutė will be opened at the Kaunas Picture Gallery (Donelaičio st. 16) 2nd floor exhibition space on 14th November, 2014 at 5.30pm. The opening of the exhibition will take place before the opening of the contemporary Lithuanian textile collection exhibition “The Shroud of Time” (Kaunas Picture Gallery main exhibition space at 6pm), so the visitors are invited to view both art projects on the same evening.
Živilė Minkutė is an emerging artist, who is studying for a Masters in Graphic art at Vilnius Academy of Art, and has already held several solo exhibitions in Vilnius and Šiauliai. At the Kaunas Picture Gallery the artist is exhibiting large format monotypes. The title of the exhibition references the intangible connections and metaphysical links of the world. The main themes evident in artist’s works are self-reflection, search for identity, existence and reflections on our relationship to environment. The exhibition is also intriguing in it’s installation of graphic works, where the artist claims: “in the installation the lines ascend from the paper and start to dissect the space and their starting points begin to form a silhouette, a self-portrait”. In addition, this exhibition has an interactive element when the viewer becomes not just a passive observer, but a part of the exhibition itself.
This exhibition is presented by the virtual contemporary art gallery Art-Cart. From January to July all Art-Cart registered artists participated in the competition for a solo exhibition, which was won by Živilė Minkutė. This exhibition is already the second art project initiated by Art-Cart this autumn. On 25th October, Art-Cart participated in presenting an exhibition of Ignas Maldžiūnas photographs at the International Vilnius Airport.
Exhibition will close on December 31st, 2014.
Art-Cart project is supported by the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
