My work will be on display in Lithuania as a part of an exhibition hosted by The Textile Artists’ Guild in Kaunas this month. The exhibition, entitled Experiments with Light, has been curated by Jolanta Šmidtiene and Dovil? Vanagaite.
The brand new Kaunas arena’ media centre will be transformed for an international exhibition in which exhibits will be installed in the darkness and illuminated by ultraviolet light. This luminescent lighting will highlight details of the artworks enriching the aesthetic experiences of the visitors creating mystical effects and exhibiting unexpected approaches to textile art.
The exhibition will feature four of my luminescent sculptures including Wretched Rupture III (pictured above). There will be a launch event on Friday 23 September 2011 from 8.00 – 9.00pm and the exhibition will continue throughout the Textile festival. The Textile Guild will also be holding a number of workshops throughout the Kaunas Biennial.
