"Annet Gelink Gallery is pleased to present Gabrielė Adomaitytė’s first solo show in The Bakery. Traversing Discrete Loci refers to the method of loci, an ancient Greek memory enhancement technique that uses imaginary locations for storing information through mental image-making (loci being Latin for “places"). Gabrielė Adomaitytė has been working with the story of an archivist in Lithuania, who has turned his house into a museum called The Clothes Archive. The museum is essentially a shrine to the Soviet era. Adomaitytė projects this retro-utopian world into the series of paintings presented in The Bakery. The multiplicity of layers alludes to the lack of a singular narrative; instead, the narratives come together in a memory palace suspended in time through collage and drawing."
