Tomas Martišauskis: Creature
A space surrounds an object. The object is the core of the environment it occupies. In this core are dimensions of time and space. Considering that the relationships between the core and the space around it are abstract, and usually complex, what will become of the space if the core object is replaced by “authentic copies” of itself?
Tomas Martišauskis’s Creature looks at such relationships between sculptural and spatial matters. In this site-specific installation, in the place of the primary object are its three-dimensional likeness, drawings of its structural lines, a digitised animation of its behaviour, and its sound renditions.
Born in 1977, Tomas Martišauskis received his master’s degree in fine arts from Vilnius Academy of Arts in 2006. He lives and works in Vilnius and has been exhibiting mainly in Lithuania.
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.
