Maria Loboda's solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius (CAC) is the first llarge-scale presentation of the artist‘s work in the Baltic region. On 27th January, the exhibition will open the CAC's 2017 solo show series.

The exhibition I am Radiant, I am Radiant, I am Radiant in My Defeat stretches along the one thousand square metres of the CAC venue taking the form of an ancient chant, a repetitive chant of hope in times of collapse, which by its rhythm transcends through to the unknown.

Maria Loboda's solo show, conceived especially for the CAC hall, further pursues her ongoing artistic explorations into the archaic concepts of diverse belief systems, the transcendental ideas of the human soul and the wholeness of their manifestations in arcane objects, archaeology, architecture, religion and art. This quest is mapped out here in a full spatial installation consisting of a system of marks and passages that refer to experiences of transition and transformation.

Using the huge size of the venue, Loboda has created a labyrinthine installation which weaves through the whole space, followed by smaller objects and wall scripts, frescoes and graffiti, all composed from her both her new and older works. 

Maria Loboda (b. 1979 in Kraków) creates spaces of enigma and puzzle that lead deep into the layers of rich historical narratives and refer to the current state of things. Her work has been presented at numerous institutions worldwide including Documenta13, and her solo exhibitions have been held at Museo Reina Sofia, Kunstverein Braunschweig, Oxford Modern and The Power Plant Contemporary Art gallery in Toronto.  Currently, another exhibition of hers is on at Kunsthalle Basel, Maria Loboda: Havoc in the Heavenly Kingdom.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, photo: promotional materials

The authors of The Witcher came across a typical problem for local products released onto an international market. How does one go about references to local culture or history? Should it be explained to the foreign consumer? Or should the creators leave it as it is and not worry about it being understood or not? Or maybe it should be cut out altogether?

The album Zofia Rydet: Sociological Record 1978-1990 is the effect of a strenuous effort to create a one-volume synthesis which would entail the 12-year-long period of the work of Polish documental photography’s first lady. Wojciech Nowicki, who took up this task, chose 200 pieces from over 20,000 negatives, arranged them in a particular order, and wrote a foreword.
