Fine Arts Exhibition REFLECTION and Podium Arts/Live Performances

LTart.NL the Fine Arts Exhibition REFLECTION, hosted by Lithuanian Community in the Netherlands and curated by Inga Cholmogorova (LT/NL/FR), will present the works of international acclaimed and upcoming artists from various disciplines. The works will range from painting to photography, sculpture, installation and live performance, created by the alumni and students of the best art education institutions in Lithuania and Holland such as Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Vilniaus Dailes Akademija, Riijksacademie, De Ateliers and Dutch Art Institute among others.

This year’s theme REFLECTION invites artists to explore and present their unique interpretations of the topic through self-portraits, photography, sculpture, painting, performance and dance, inviting the visitors to reflect on how the works by Lithuanian and other expat artists are influenced by contemporary Dutch culture. Participating artists will investigate and reflect on the past and present, the human condition and the concept of self and ego, as well art and contemporary society and culture that we live in. Issues of identity, nationality and tradition as well as gender, sexuality and diversity are addressed through a collection of works, which invites the audience to take an active part in the production of meaning.

This exhibition is curated by Inga Cholmogorova, who is known for her cutting edge performance work (Japanese avant-garde dance butoh) as well as her signature works: site-specific installations. Hence the space of the church will be transformed with the site-specific sensitivity and the audience will be engaged by performances to create a place for mental space and day dreaming, an environment for experience and reflection, the space to alter one’s perception to discover the other reality within the given.
