Review June 27, 5 pm.

This Thursday, June 27, at 5 pm, the Review Room will host the installation Pensive Christ (Ru-pintoje.lis, 2012) by Ieva Roju-te. (born in 1989).

The author graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts this year with a BA in painting, and has been working on combining text and image using elements of street art, which has in a sense become modern folk art. Ieva collects proverbs and quotes from her immediate environment and analyses them as everyday folklore. These texts end up in zines or notebooks and installations.

Ieva's installation God Bless America (2012) was dedicated to her experience in America, her thesis work You'll Be Lost, Child (Vaikeli, tu pražu-si, 2013) reflected on the relationships between parents and children, while the Pensive Christ, which will be introduced in the Gallery's Review Room, is a study of folk art criticism. Various explanations of the symbolism of Pensive Christ found in various written sources were put on a display board. Although the symbol may seem obvious to a Lithuanian, the range of interpretations of its meaning is wide and interesting. A close look at these hybrids of written text and spoken language that have reached us from the old times and have been functioning naturally in our minds may reveal a part of our own cultural identity.
