Aidas Bareikis: ECHO CONDITIONER

11 November - 18 December 2014
Overview

The exhibition is titled after the artist’s newest installation Echo Conditioner, which occupies the gallery’s largest hall. The name alludes to the process of repetition and constant reconsideration, through which an idea or an object is refined, clarified, and purified like air. With this work Bareikis continues his series of impressive and affective installations, constructed from various everyday use objects, waste material, and readymades, which have helped him become established and well-known on the international contemporary art scene. 

 

Aidas Bareikis (b. 1967) graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts with a degree in painting in 1992. In 1993 he became a Fulbright Scholar and went to study and live in the USA. In 1997 Bareikis graduated from Hunter College in New York. The artist has held solo exhibitions at the Leo Koenig Inc and Marta galleries (New York), the Queens Museum (New York), the Asbaek Gallery (Copenhagen), the Contemporary Art Centre in Berlin, and the Kunsthalle Wien. His work has also been presented at the Athens Biennale 2007: Destroy Athens and at the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zürich, Switzerland. Bareikis has participated in numerous group exhibitions at various contemporary art centres, museums, and galleries.
