(AV17) gallery during summer season continue to present contemporary art exhibitions in Lithuania. This time we present Julija Pociūtė’s exhibition “Line” on 18th of July 6 pm at Artists’ house in Nida (Pamario str. 20a).

At this exhibition she continues the exploration of reality and fiction, this time by constructing them from fragments of personal and political history. The source of inspiration for the exhibition was archival photography portraying the memories of her family in abandoned Palanga bunkers, which marked the Molotov Line during the Second World War. This line is a historical fact that provides a starting point for reflecting on the significance of security, opening, isolation and closure.

At the exhibition “Line” artist presents new works, including drawings, objects, photograph and video works. Using the reflections of the French philosopher and semiotician Roland Barthes on the links between image and memory, she divides the image into parts, isolating them from the environment, considering the nature of the memories outside of their context. Artist also touches upon our problematic relationship with the past, the desire to erase it as if it never existed.

Exhibition “Line” will be open until 28th of July at Artists’ house in Nida (Pamario str. 20a).
