On the 4th of February, on Saturday, at 5 PM, in Railway Museum (Geležinkelio street. 16, Vilnius) two-parted exhibition: Returning/overcoming of space. From R. collection“ is opening. Curator of an exhibition – Rasa Noreikaitė -Miliūnienė.

This project – like a continuation of previous exhibition “From R. collection artistic/technical trajectories”, which is full of different and coherent topics. Collection is a symbolic “luggage”, which was collected when curator and her colleagues researched Vilnius Railway station, artefacts, moods, events, stories, which is connected to train routes. An essential part in this collection is other projects, which were implemented by group of artists “IŠ REIKALO”, which held events in Dūmų fabrikas, in basements of Saint John street gallery and other public places.

Name of the exhibition marks a destination to return and overcome space – it means rituals when artists once again try to tame spaces of Railway museum, which was newly renovated and became more suitable for thematic exhibitions and educations – due to that reason are full of eclectic and unusual elements which are ”concurred” by artists. There also will be changes in this exhibition – those changes could be compared to routs of the trains. Idea of renewing of the exposition – is like travelling in time and space, when new impressions, emotions, experiences are creating.

Dominant topic of this exhibition is travelling and train traffic. There are also other visual perspectives – some of them are about the artists who are not only artists but also – curators of exhibitions, gallerists, researchers of art. Other perspectives marks the language of creation. It is bright “painting” line where traits of modern painting are very vivid. Also, equally important is auto reflection of female artists, which is autoironical but full of sensitive ant intimate stories. Exhibition is also full of ascetic or eco-friendly art works. Colorful exposition also reflects topic of the war in Ukraine – through nostalgic images, signs of longing which are so bright art works of Ukrainian artist.
