From November 23rd till December 20th BWA Warszawa gallery features two exhibitions: Laura Kaminskaitė’s “Exhition” and Augustas Serapinas’ “Jakubowska 16/3 – Jakubowska 16/3”. These two solo shows that are on display at the same place at the same time with the effort of the viewer can become one or even more than two exhibitions.
Laura Kaminskaitė (b. 1984, lives and works in Vilnius) – an artist whose oeuvre is mainly focused on the phenomenon of exhibition, while playing with and within it’s structure and highlighting the approach of spectator as well as the clues of perception. The artworks from the artist’s previous exhibitions will meet with the new ones and overlap to create the character of a particular situation – “Exhition”, a solo show at BWA Gallery.
For the most part of his artistic practice Augustas Serapinas (b. 1990, lives and works in Vilnius) works in situ, exploring and researching places, and employing the materials he finds there for the subsequent site-specific projects, be it an installation or an experience. For his solo show “Jakubowska 16/3 – Jakubowska 16/3” in BWA Gallery an artist will create a new piece, related to the location of the gallery: the history of the building and a story of its inhabitant.
