Sculpture | Undergraduate | Vilnius (LT, EN)


Creative work can provide an individual with a sense of fulfilment earlier on in life. Sooner or later, one faces the unavoidable subjects: what to do, how to do it, and what for. In order to unveil their possibilities in the area of contemporary art, I suggest that the students who have chosen my group should freshly rethink the evolution of sculpture in the 4D space, analysing the relationships between volumetric-material arts and media during their studies. Therefore, it is necessary to go deep into the experience collected in the art field over the past few decades, getting to know important artistic movements and their theoretical underpinnings. At the same time, attempts are made to innovatively use technologies and materials, revealing their previously unused qualities, testing on how temperature, sound, or light may excite the stillness of the material and justify its invasion into the creative practice.  During such actual tests, the unpredictable motions of cognition are revealed, and otherwise incalculable spaces for creativity are opened. We have beauty in the world to veil the truth, to make life at least somewhat bearable, however, for an artist, it is not the golden mean itself that is important, but rather its relationship to the ruins. In art, beauty and truth are opposite values, however, on this scale, beauty may coincide with the truth, although only a good artist can achieve that. A good artist has no right to misuse beauty. Beauty without truth is plain kitsch. Claiming that the only truth is that there is no truth, is unfair and dishonest. The truth is that there are multiple truths.
