barbora gediminaitė | fluid
Vilnius Academy of Arts gallery “Artifex”
fluid – a reflection of the multifunctional and fluid Islamic religious space actualized in the doctoral research at Vilnius Academy of Arts. The narrative of fluidity and liminal spatialities unfolds in the three rooms of the gallery in fragments of prayer rugs, ritual reverence for the space and its contexts. The intersections of spatialities and their fluid structures, charged with religious and cultural content, are opened up with urban quotations, (de)personalisation and hints of commonality.
Barbora Gediminaitė with a background of Textile Art and Design education (VAA) as well as Islamic Studies (VU) currently is working on her doctoral project at Vilnius Academy of Arts with a major focus on Islamic spatialities The questions of constructing Islamic religious space and its contextuality became the core axis of Barbora‘s recent works. Islam, spatial narration and readability of cultural signs are the key words of her artistic praxis.
Project is partly funded by the Lithuanian council for culture.
Opening of the exhibition: 23rd of August (Tuesday) at 6 PM
