Emalin is pleased to present February 13th, Augustas Serapinas’ second exhibition at the gallery.
Emalin, a gallery managed by Leopold Thun and Angelina Volk began as a nomadic exhibition programme in 2014 and opened its permanent gallery space in Shoreditch in September 2016.
Augustas Serapinas (b. 1990 in Vilnius, Lithuania) lives and works in Vilnius. It is the second time he is being presented in Emalin gallery in London.
With “February 13th”, the second exhibition by Lithuanian-born-and-based Augustas Serapinas at Emalin in London, the artist brings – quite literally – a group of snowmen whose journeys eponymously began on the date of the exhibition’s title. The snowy statues were built by anonymous children in Vilnius, after which they were plucked from playgrounds, loaded in a van and driven to the United Kingdom, where they now rest comfortably in a freezer at the gallery.
There will be an opportunity to listen to the talk between Augustas and Caroline Elbaor, about the exhibition and Augustas’ art on 15h of May at Emalin.
Augusutas Serapinas is presenting his work at the 58th Venice Biennial exhibition. It is curated by Ralph Rugoff, director of London’s Hayward Gallery. Titled “May You Live In Interesting Times,” it will run from May 11 to November 24.
