Exhibition

25.01 at 18:00 YermilovCentre invites to opening of the project: Exposures. Klaipėda photography at the end of the ХХ century.

Curator: Darius Vaichekauskas

Photographs from Klaipeda Viktoras Trublenkovas, Artūras Šeštokas, Arvydas Stubra, Juozas Meškys and Raimundas Urbonas debuted and introduced themselves in artistic photography in the late 70's and early 80's. This period of Lithuanian photography was marked by powerful changes and new artistic trends that were felt in other major cities of Lithuania. What is the relevance of photographs that criticize long gone times today? The work of Klaipeda photographers, like contemporaries from all over Lithuania, is not a political or social manifesto that risks losing weight with the fall of the regime — they show human existence from a personal position. From the standpoint that makes any social model based on the generally accepted principles of rationality and illusion of purposeful action, and the plans for the functioning of the individual in it (according to socialist utopias or "American dreams") are hopeless or absurd. That is why the images taken a few decades ago, are also valid today, inviting for reflection, relevant in various circumstances. The subjective vision, intuitively captured on the film, is an alternative to artificially constructed political and social reality, convincingly proving the authenticity of artistic creation, regardless of the changing code for interpreting the photo.

26/01 at 15:00 a curatorial tour of Darius Vaichekauskas and Arturas Sestokasas will take place.

Free entrance!
