The exhibition –Trains of Special Purpose – is the continuation of the international project, dedicated to the Railway topic (project was initiated in 2004 by a painter Rasa Noreikaitė-Miliūnienė). It is not the first time then the Museum of Railways in Vilnius has been chosen as the place for the exhibitions. The ongoing exhibition presents different artists. Among painters there are: Henrikas Čerapas, Jacek Dłużewski, Jūratė Jarulytė, Krzysztof Klimek, Agnė Kulbytė, Kristijonas Miliūnas, Rasa Noreikaitė-Miliūnienė, photographers: Saulius Mikalauskas, Patrick Murphy. Some works of these artists were inspired by the railway environment: the world controlled by technologies and connections of signalizations, the movement and speed metaphors, or the images of very casual landscapes, that stamped into memory. Other works have acquired additional thematic associations only in the space of the Railways’ museum: colours, textures, rhythmic. Each piece captures “something else” that does not need to be directly identified, which was sought for an individual artistic aim, personal association, inner necessity, who has acquired its “special purpose”. Being alongside such works opens a fragment of visionary artistic reality in which paths and routes are based as their own trajectories.
The exhibition was organized in cooperation with the Lithuanian Railway Museum, Lithuanian Artists’ Association gallery “Arka” and the Artists Association “Otwarta Pracownia” from Cracow.
