In the graphic works of Jurate Rekeviciute predominates the theme of the almighty facebook, but the works are not about the social net – facebook is just an instrument to frame the present time. The main idea revealed in the works deals with our expectations, hopes, and void.

In the works you can see real facebook images, reproduced with the help of industrial digital technology. The choice of the technology is not accidental – it is symbolic for disclosing the contemporary theme. The digital images have been supplemented with linen tracery, which the artist USES deliberately, as a parallel for a vital purpose – wish to COMMUNICATE. To highlight it, a red colour has been brought into the graphics.

,,We dream of an exclusive attention, but receive a heap of information trash. We are looking forward to something REAL… But receive plenty of NOTHING. Just all kinds of surrogates and supplements… While wasting our time on NOTHING, we lose our time as a chance…to write a REAL LETTER”, – says the artist about the ideas and emotions disclosed in her works.

The author could be called the mistress of the print, as she is especially concerned about the process of printing, (not cutting), the repeat of the print, the debth and vacuum of infinity.

“Comment. Like” is the title of a new graphics exhibition of Jurate Rekeviciute. In her pictures the artist reveals the trap of virtual intercourse. Intimate feelings “wrapped” into text messages and comments, after hitting the virtual intercourse, become public and assume an absolutely different quality. A sincere confession becomes a lie, and a lie becomes the truth as tall as a monument. The heart’s cry for help merges into just one more promotional poster you flippantly pass by. Where is the storage of our feelings? Is it in a mobile phone or on a social website?
As the artist Jurate Rekeviciute has it, such a storage is in her graphics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

„FOR LOVE NOT MONEY“

The 15th Tallinn Print Triennial „FOR LOVE NOT MONEY“

„Fucking Life“ digital print, drypoint, 100*70, 2010m.

„Nostalgia“ digital print, drypoint, 100*70, 2010m.

The title of Jurate rekeviciute’s diptych is based on play on words, which refers directly to the sexual act and in the metaphorical sense emphasizes the depravity of life.

This is a modern allegory of forced subordination,degradation and exploitation. The rough coitus of the dogs is the embodiment of life-as well as love.This is an expression of life’s natural laws that intertwine desire and pain,but the viewing of which is considered to be unseemly.Just like we do not want to notice the copulating dogs,we do not what to notice the lack of balance around us -the constant dependency and hypocritical dictation,be it in relations between individuals,societies or countries.On the one hand ,there are idyllic views of Vilnius Old Town,where the high-rise commercial buildings that have recently forcefully invaded the city skyline are depicted only on the far horizon and the postcard-like panorama seems nostalgically ”clean”. On the other hand ,there are close-ups of the dogs doing”dirty things” that are surrounded by emty space ,a peculiar vacuum. This emptiness is connected to alienation-in the context of a general sense of feeling trapped, these dogs celebrating their ”weddings” seem quite disturbing.At the same time ,as attemt at a singular symbolism appears in the emphatically contrasting colours -black and white-of the mating dogs.Like an inseparable ying and yang ,our life is also is constantly connected by contrasts-high and low, strong and weak,subordination and domination.

Exhibition of Jūratė Rekevičiūtė Opened in the Standing Agency of Lithuania EU

On June 9th, the graphics exhibition of Jūratė Rekevičiūtė , called “ Doll is alone at home” was opened by the Standing representative of Lithuania in EU ambassador Rytis Martikonis . “Doll is alone at home” is the latest exhibition of the artist. It has been created this year and already shown in Vilnius and Kaunas.
The backgrounds for the dolls’ life were created by a seven year old girl Suoma Pilinkutė, and J.Rekevičiūtė engraved them and printed. For the exhibition in Brussels the collection is supplemented with new exhibits that have not been shown before. Though the exhibition is very personal, it speaks to the visitors via a well known symbol – a doll.

„This exhibition is about life, it is like evidence that miracles exist and they are so close to us, that dolls live their own independent life. Everything is just as you believe,- said the Lithuanian artist.

Works of art of J. Rekevičiūtė are bright, lively and full of artistic courage.” One doll, one mask, one me. And never the same. The doll skylarks, it hides in the darkest corners, takes part in a carnival, appears on the pictures of other artists, acts a part in a play, catches angry thought crocodiles”- writes an art critic Ignas Kazakevičius.

The artist has arranged about ten personal and forty sectional exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. She creates graphics, installations, TV scenography, accessory and decorates porcelain. Her works of art have been exhibited in Austria, the USA, Russia, Sweden, Latvia, Estonia and Poland. In 2006 J. Rekevičiūtė was awarded at Lithuanian Graphics Biennial „Now Art Now Future.Freedom/Rytoj Yra Dabar. Laisvė“, and won “Master” award at XIV International Art Festival in St.Petersburg.

The exhibition in Brussels was supported by Lithuanian Ministry of Culture.

The exhibition of J. Rekevičiūtė in the Standing Agency of Lithuania is open till the end of June.
