Slovak contemporary glass and ceramic design exhibition opening in Vilnius

Ambassador of Slovakia to Lithuania Ladislav Babčan together with Director of Lithuanian Art Museum Arūnas Gelūnas opened the exhibition “More is More II” in Vytautas Kasiulis Art Museum in Vilnius on 2 October. The exhibition curator and artist Patrik Illo and one of the exhibiting designers Aleksandra Stencel also attended the opening of an exhibition with the subtitle Slovak contemporary glass and ceramic design. Selected works from Slovak glass and ceramic designers of young and middle generation as well as from designers living in Slovakia and students of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava have been selected and are at display.     

 

A dozen of established authors will thus present their works in Vilnius. Among them Lucia Betinská Kováčiková, Peter Ďuriš, Patrik Illo, Simona Janišová, Markéta Nováková, Mira Podmanická, Ľubomír Ontkóc, Rudolf Rusňák, Aleksandra Stencel, Zuzana Svatik, Linda Viková and a couple of students from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. 

 

Patrik Illo´s curatorial pick does not map the Slovak designer scene completely. It rather explores several most interesting approaches of individual designers. The utility and aesthetics is combined with a certain narrative bearing the author´s message. This feature is typical for Patrik Illo´s works. He consequently searches for similar “expressionnism” of other designers. This probably explains the best the chosen title “More is More”.

 

The exhibition has been organized by the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Riga in cooperation with the Lithuanian Art Museum, association SK-LLO and is financially supported by the Slovak Arts Council.   

 

The exhibition in Vilnius will last until 24 November. It will be later reinstalled in Kaunas, Lithuania´s second largest city.
