Tales about contemporary popular characters, the effects of advertising strategies and rapidly formed consumer habits are transformed into visual language through the remaking of classical genres of landscape, portrait and still-life. Zilvinas Landzbergas forms these spatial narratives using illusionary techniques: he combines details in a strange, untypical ways, models different sources of light, plays with 2-D and 3-D images and „immaterializes“ materials. The suggestive atmosphere of his installations inspire the audience‘s involvement and invites them to construct their own meanings from the variety of fragments on display.
Zilvinas Landzbergas graduated from the Sculpture Department at Vilnius Academy of Arts, studied at Plymouth University and spent two years in the post-graduate artists‘ residency De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Since 1998 he has actively participated in international exhibitions, symposiums and projects. He has had solo exhibitions at Modern Art Oxford and Fons Welters gallery in Amsterdam.
