Lithuanian artists present their works in Glasgow International

PR_Marija_Nemcenko_1

Glasgow International, which is perhaps the most important art festival in Scotland is happy to host 4 Lithuanian artists and see their works.

Vilnius-based Lithuanian artist’s Augustas Serapinas first UK institutional solo exhibition opened at David Dale Gallery. It was the artist’s first UK institutional solo exhibition, and one of his most ambitious to date. The exhibition was a major commission of new installation work by Serapinas spanning multiple spaces within the organisation’s building, involving individuals from neighbouring businesses. The show revived the situation when a metalwork company once lent its space to the bread makers.

It followed Serapinas’ well-received first solo exhibition Housewarming at Emalin, London in 2016, and his large-scale installation Sigi at Kunsthalle Wien in 2017.

Marija Nemčenko presented her installation BRUT. In an intuitive study of socialist structures that expands from Eastern Europe’s brutalist landscapes to Glasgow’s tower blocks, BRUT finds shared experiences to reveal the cultural legacy of these constructions. Influenced by personal experience, Nemcenko addresses the questions of unfulfilled promises and elaborates upon how these concrete colonies come to define a certain social and cultural identity from multiple perspectives at once.

On the 25th of April, Marija will also give a talk. In this talk, artist will take visitors through her work and elaborate upon the links between her exhibition for Glasgow International and the historical surroundings of Fairfield Heritage Centre.

Time: 7 pm, the event is free, but registration is required. You can register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/brut-installation-at-fairfield-talk-by-the-artist-tickets-41519260225

Artists Julija Goyd ir Kotryna Ūla Kiliulytė will participate in the photography exhibition La Nuit de l’Instant at the Street Level Photoworks studio on the 26th of April.

Glasgow International is Scotland’s largest festival for contemporary art, taking place over three weeks every two years across the city of Glasgow.

Combining the characteristics of a visual arts biennial with an open submission model for artists and curators based in the city, GI is a truly unique event in the European cultural calendar.

Augustas Serapinas’ exhibition is open until the 26th of May, Marija Nemčenko’s installation will be available until the 7th of May.
