Bindweed. Objects become memories and expectations
Bindweed is an exhibition by Liudvikas Buklys. "Why are some things called 'optical devices' while others are not? The common definition covers only objects related to electromagnetic fields and light (prisms, mirrors, telescopes) when it could be infinitely broader without losing any sense. In the end, is there really a fundamental difference between a planetarium and a flowerpot if your aim is to see things? Let us venture the following definition: every thing which affects a field of objects around itself - by bending, protruding, bifurcating, manipulating, transporting and circumscribing them - should be called an optical device. The novel is one optical device to give a good example. Not a particular novel, but the literary genre as a whole. If you look through it, objects become memories and expectations, they appear to be like sponges for the stories around them. " Opening Saturday, 30th October 2010, from 2 to 7pm.
