Tomas Martišauskis: Creature

14 Sept. 2013 – 12 Jan. 2014

Hafnarhús

Creature is a site specific installation by Lithuanian artist Tomas Martišauskis (b. 1977) , which is a postmodern take on the relationship between sculptural matter and the space. Using advanced technologies he translates a specific sculptural object into various mediums thus expanding the notion of traditional sculpture. Paradoxical relationship between authenticity and a copy enables to see different aspects of the object: its interior and exterior, its sound, plasticity in animation and in the structural drawing.

Tomas Martišauskis (b. 1977), lives and works in Vilnius, Lithuania. 2006 MA of Fine Art, department of Sculpture in Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. 2005 studied in Finnish Academy of Fine Arts KUVA, department of Sculpture.

The exhibition is a part of the Cultural Program of the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and supported by The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.
