Agata Orlovska

Kunstniku päritolumaa: Leedu

Agata Orlovska (b. 1998) is a young generation painter who also creates objects and sound installations. Looking for connections between the body of painting and the body of a picture, the artist does not limit herself to the materiality of the canvas, conceptually preventing the technique and narrative of the work from coming into contact. The narration of the work in Agata’s creation enables a personal relationship of the artist with the developing theme, but is abstracted and becomes a subtle, almost unrecognizable reference to the plot of the canvas. Color, stroke or its texture in her canvases act as cultural references, as the body of painting acquires associativity, and the knowledge of technology allows the creator to notice narratives in the medium itself. Some of Orlovska’s works are characterized by the expression of classical conceptualism, in others, using humor, the artist reflects on the issues of craftsmanship and elitism of painting. While deconstructing the narrative of the work, Agata often senses the movement of the image, capturing it in its own stage of development. Equally important in the artist’s work is the reflection of the invisible sound phenomenon, which functions through research into the phenomenon of acousmatics. Interrelationships between image and sound, their integrity and reflections become the main object of Orlovska’s artistic re search and the basis of the conceptual creative plane. With her sound works, the artist asks in what ways invisible sound functions in contemporary visuality, how thoughts are expressed without a traceable visual source, what significance and relationship to painting have other se nses that are not based on sight. Here, the question of perceptual visuality is extended to an other area of critically defined media, to the area of its interpretation and unknown potential. Involvement of the viewer (listener) in the active experience of such an artistic research is gu aranteed by the experience of the dichotomy of belief and knowledge, which is ch aracteristic of the definition of acousmatics, and which emerges when the creators manipulate the relationship between perception and (sub)vision of the perceiver.
