Ieva Savickaitė / ONO

30 April, 2016

Performance ONO by Ieva Savickaitė was presented in collaboration with media artist Gintarė Gaidamavičiūtė

Visual performance ONO invokes the critics of linguistic construction in order to speak about the societal hierarchical structures, the conformist attitude towards sexuality. The author approaches speech as a tool for creation and destruction of oneself and others in the background of a staged overall process. “ONO” – it is a state of being about the melancholy of oneself, an attempt to catch a marginal condition at which you are alien to yourself as the real “you” could not have ever been acknowledged. The performance operating in the context of theory of gender performativity is being performed as ritual disregarding words and inviting to turn to the body.

The first mono performance of Ieva Savickaitė was introduced in 2014 during CREATurE Live Art festival in Kaunas. The artist is interested in experimental performative art forms, theatrical laboratories and contemporary performance art tendencies. Her creative work can be described as signified, visually expressive aesthetically, dealing with problems of human body materiality, also personal themes that are perceived in a context of social cultural life. Now she works in Lithuania and abroad. Ieva Savickaitė’s creative activity is based both in Lithuania and abroad.

Evelina Šimkutė / Exhibition from the sculpture series ‘Objects’

22nd – 31st August, 2016

‘Objects’ fits in various discourses – cultural, urbanistic, architectural, historical and others.

The author researches her native Šilainiai micro-district that has dramatically changed. This research is imbued with personal and more extensive experience of a historical epoch as well. Abandoned children’s’ playgrounds, almost seized by nature, are brought back to their original physical form through sculpture. By stopping the decay and also highlighting it, a new relationship with the familiar surroundings is being created. Copies of public objects handmade from stainless steel and concrete can be seen at this enclosed project space. Both these and originals often do not serve their direct function but mark a change of reality, memories and place.
