Aistė Laisvė Viršulytė / R-coating

R-coating is a micro-exhibition about:

  • Modern crimes with innovative means.
  • Illegal medical experiments.
  • New ways to maim/kill people.

    The exhibition consists of three works – a research and two works of art. These are works with the tone of documentation at the level of development of mass technologies, in which they choose to capture a real image, imperfect sound, avoiding theatricality, personalization, or unnecessary aestheticization. The artist’s works become secret messages that must be believed.

    The exhibition will be open and visited from 12/20/2022, based on the “long run” and “one by one” principles. The exhibition is planned to continue until it is “run from winter to summer” – 6 months, until 20 June 2023. Symbolically – from the beginning of the freezing of problems (winter solstice) to the beginning of heat (summer solstice).

    The “long run” requires both good health, endurance and will. “Running” is both time and work, during which the position of the situation is changed. Freezing can be associated with a completely stuck situation and people’s inaction – ignoring the problem, not solving it, moving away, psychological detachment, emotional coldness. We hope that the problems analyzed at the R-coating exhibition will begin to dissolve when the summer culmination is reached (when the Sun will be at its highest point above the horizon in Vilnius).

GAPS GALLERY is a micro-gallery that adapts to its visitors and works with a flexible schedule, thereby increasing its chances of survival.
