Emilija Škarnulytė @ Vartai Gallery, Vilnius

Emilija Škarnulytė @ Vartai Gallery, Vilnius


Emilija is showing her latest project Dingusio miesto slėnis (The Valley of the Lost City) consisting of pictures and videos of the Raigardas Valley which has been painted by Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis.
Nostalgic. Intimate. Horizon blurred with mist. The prints show lines, like they have been printed on a faulty printer.
I  wonder what do non-Lithuanians make of her work? It resonates some quintessentially Lithuanian aesthetics, suggesting an idea, that my fellow countrymen would respond to it with a different emotional charge to everybody else.
