STATE OF MIND
The use oi photography as a line art medium is a very recent phenomenon in the ex-Sovlet republics. Since independence, many artists have rejected conventional mediums, and have attempted to express the realities oi their experience in celluloid. Ii you consider the drastic changes that have taken place in the lives oi the people oi the newly established Baltic States oi Latvia, lithuania and Estonia, it is easy to understand why all seventeen artist/photographers in this show seem to need to reconcile themselves with the past and find new identities and orientation.
Grappling with history, some have used old photos and negatives, but they are given poweriul new connotations. Vytautis Stanionis has employed old Soviet Union passport photographs which were taken shortly aiter the occupation oi lithuania. Originally printed in pairs because oi the shortage oi iilm, he has enlarged them to show the mesmerised iaces oi a repressed nation. ilow unlike the ‘happy in labour’ Soviet citizens in
liarald leppikson’s ambiguous Socialist-realist photographs.
The artist Eve linnap investigates, ‘a sense oi place and belonging,’ in her composite work, The Estonian ilome. Using a scrap-book layout, she combines bleak photographs oi modem housing blocks with iaded iamily snap-shots oi previous generations posing in iront oi their iarmhouses. Personal spaces imbued with a strong sense oi nostalgia are also used in the photos oi liemigius Treigys and Gintautas Trimakas. Their images oi empty and decaying interiors have the heightened intensity oi remembered objects and places, and evoke sadness and loss.
Many oi the photos in the exhibition have an experimental ieel, and while the artists employ existing photographic methods, they attempt to produce an art which is uniquely their own. The results are honest and almost aggressively unpretentious (Ann liamlyn).
