Showcasing of Gabrielė Adomaitytė's artworks in the Show_Room

New works by Gabrielė Adomaitytė

Galerija Vartai presents never before shown work in Lithuania by one of the most prominent young artists. The artworks there first debuted in Art Cologne 2021 where Adomaitytė’s works were showcased alongside another Lithuanian artist – Robertas Narkus. In Vilnius her works graced Galerija Vartai Show_Room – an exhibition space dedicated to innovative art and design objects. Surrounded by an ever-changing, yet stylishly curated environment, Adomaitytė’s artworks were situated in between meanings which complements her inspiration – visual representation of digitalizing the memories archives. While Show_Room is not an archive, it is still a collection saturated with meanings, forms, and various contexts. Adomaitytė’s paintings draw on alternative systems for archiving information. By transposing this information into the slower, analog 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.

Gabrielė Adomaitytė (b. 1994) graduated from the Sculpture Department at Vilnius Academy of Art in 2017. She currently lives and works in Amsterdam, where, until the spring of 2019, she was an artist in residence at De Ateliers. 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: 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).
