Roof from Rūdninkai
19 Aug – 17 Sep 2023 Opening 18 Aug 18:00 Free Admission
Roof from Rūdninkai engages with the relationship between traditional architecture, building materials and modern sculpture. The starting point for Augustas Serapinas’s sculptural compositions is the elements of a deserted wooden house from a rural area in Lithuania. Serapinas acquires these buildings, often originating in the 19th century, from various villages by searching through popular classified advertisement portals where they are put up for sale as firewood. Serapinas uses the historical material to form sculptural compositions that in turn recall the formal language of minimalism and relate to architecture of the Klosterruine.
