Žilvinas Landzbergas. Crown Off Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius April 17 - May 24, 2015
Žilvinas Landzbergas’ exhibition Crown Off could be introduced in the artist’s own words as a musical album in 3D (minimal ambient post-punk new folk neo-gothic?). In the exhibition, a ‘white cube’ located within the modernist building of the CAC – an abstract space – becomes a place with its own time and possibility for duration. The CAC spaces are taken apart and transformed; the exhibition stretches through them as a drawing, as an appendix to reality, as a dedication. By knitting together apparent materials, abstract forms, and fiction, it draws onto reality and exposes its missing parts and cracks – that which is invisible, immeasurable, unnamed.
The physical body of Landzbergas’ sculptures is initially a dotted line; it is a trace, a condition, or a circumstance of a past, present, or future event. This phenomenon is subject to our own exhibition/sound-copying bodies that perhaps move, linger, perceive or hesitate. A particular sculptural object, a thing, exists in a space and in relation to it and to us in it; residing in the pre-verbal experience, before (mis)recognition and definite meaning. Asin nature: 1+1=3 and more.
