The “si:said” gallery (Lithuania) is pleased to present “Echo”, a group show bringing together three Lithuanian artists: Vladas Balsys, Tomas Dauksa, and Rolandas Marcius.
The exhibition “Echo” evolves around re-connection people with nature, city life and “digital coming back to nature”. Each of the artists makes work that investigates different aspects of the topic.
Cell phones influenced not only our lifestyle but also language and behavior. Ringtones and alert tones cause to clear up, who is the owner, to ask him/her to reduce the volume or to leave the public space. The period of time when the metamorphosis occurs and humans became as birds singers been unnoticed. The installation “The nest box“ by Vladas Balsys expends boundaries of existing ones by supplemented birds singing with analogical sound ‒ ringtones of ICQ, Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
The installation “No limit (stationary edition)“ by Tomas Dauksa investigates the line between the living and the machine, between a toy and something else. A moving, shining, and sound producing artificial creature may seem cute; it could resemble a toy, an animal from a children cartoon or a fairy tale book. The viewer gets into the place where it is difficult to say whether this situation is a game or a nightmare.
The installation “Verdure“ by Rolandas Marcius focuses on green, where the green colour becomes both space and an object. The work explores a personal relationship in site-specific place through the colour.
