|Thureday review (29.03.2012) - Vilma Šileikienė (photography)|
|The series of photographs Pagaminta Lietuvoje (Made in Lithuania) by Vilma Šileikienė was included in the show "Lithuanian Art 2000-2010: Ten Years" in the Contemporary Art Centre (Lithuania).|
On March 29, 6 p. m., the photo artist, who currently works at Pranas Gudynas Restoration Centre of the Lithuanian Art Museum, will introduce her latest series of photographs Procesas (Process) previously displayed in a personal show in Gdansk (Poland) in 2011 on the occasion of the Days of Vilnius organised in the city.
These pictures show the collision of two realities: the reality of history and cultural values represented by museum exhibits and the reality of modern world consisting of a white piece of paper (introducing more than the era of digital technologies) and the author herself.
