Artscape is an international, interdisciplinary art project that got its start in 2009 by encompassing various different cultural fields. This includes a contemporary art program which, with notable regularity, has been implemented at the gallery “Vartai” over the last two years. Every year, two artists are placed side by side, creating either a surprising dialog or a stark contrast. Through July 21, the gallery is showing the “urban surrealism” (as the artist himself calls it) of the Israeli artist Rana Slavina (1967): the experimental film “The Insomniac City Cycles” (2009) and the video work “Everything is Urgent” (2008). The mix of sound, color and images seen in the works presents the artist's most expressive manipulation of form. In diametric contrast to Slavina's work are the latest paintings by Lithuanian artist Andrius Zakarauskas (1982), titled “The Wrong Side and the Right Side”, and finished just this year. The young artist is faithful to the basic tenets of painting – brush-strokes, paint and abstract composition.
