Gabrielė Adomaitytė Lithuanian, b. 1994
Gabrielė Adomaitytė (b. 1994, Lithuania) currently lives and works in Amsterdam, where, until the spring of 2019, she was an artist in residence at De Ateliers. Her work is based on researching painterly representation and its intersection with digitization. Through investigating mnemonic devices, Adomaitytė’s paintings draw on alternative systems for archiving information. By transposing this information into the slower, analogue realm of painting, these collections of imagery function as mental aids or enhancers of cultural memory. Lifting from an encyclopedia of natural history, the data manifests as multi-dimensional figures of painterly actions, colours and shapes that create a rhizome like system of meaning. By constantly questioning the possibilities of painting and the problems of visual representation, the artist investigates information systems and the collision points of the digital and actual matter in various archives. Adomaitytė’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad: Tilde (Amsterdam, 2021), Encounter Contemporary, (London, 2021), Arti et Amicitiae (Amsterdam, 2020), Swallow (Vilnius, 2020), Annet Gelink Gallery (Amsterdam, 2020), De Ateliers (Amsterdam, 2019), VARTAI Gallery (Vilnius, 2019), and Contemporary Art Centre (Vilnius, 2018), etc., and has been awarded numerous grants and prizes (Mondriaan Funds, Buning Brongers Prize, etc.)
