'Lumen' by Gintautas Trimakas at the Meno Parkas Gallery in Dusseldorf

“The only and piffling, hopeless, romantic – counterweight to nihilism is philotopy and photophysics.” (Arvydas Šliogeris)

“I can’t even tell you exactly when I asked myself about the colour. How sensitive am I to It? And amongst all set of visual, cultural, and social codes, for me in the present is the most interesting – colour code.  After a long research, Camera-less photography became the perfect technique.  I rely on old technology. By playful performative action, I present and have my own unique “answers”.  The exhibition features a series of artworks entitled „Answers”: Henry Fox Talbot, Sir John William Herschel, Hermann Krone, as well as works from the emerging series “Silent Message”. ”
