Central Post Office of Kaunas, part of Modernism for the Future 360/365 “Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022”

‘Fasadas’ establishes new ways to experience the historical heritage that glorifies the city and highlights the characteristic elements of facades. following the documentation of the original plans of 40 iconic and less known selected projects, the artist created a series of digital drawings, a new visual and graphic lexicon based on the frontal view and contours of the buildings, similar to the blueprints made by the architects which were designed and drawn on paper. Later the drawings went under digital processing and were cut, resulting in a series of stencils made of plexiglass. The exehbited work is a series of paper collages in which the acumuleted lines shapes and figures merge into an imaginary grid, an alternative, poetic, research-based depiction of modernist Kaunas.
