A biographer of the strangeness, Goda Palekaitė is
interested in historical characters imbued with mystery; in transgressive figures who, breaking with
the dominant thought of their time, find themselves proscribed or marginalized by History.
Through her research-based practice, she digs into these particular lives,
their lacunar stories and what they allow us to deduce or speculate about the
psychology of the protagonists. She draws these portraits through a practice of
writing, mixing factual references and fictional interpretations in order to
question the phenomena of historical construction and collective memory. What
is inscribed, what is forgotten and what is perceived today. Fully assuming the
hybridity of her narratives, she challenges us about these individuals as they
are often deeply committed and have complex, liminal, personalities. She plays
on the credibility of the testimony, the power of subjective projection and
identification that inspires the audience.
For her exhibition at la Tour à Plomb, Goda Palekaitė
takes over the “Foyer” with a series of artworks that interact with the
singular architecture of this vaulted room that resembles a crypt. Under the
title Architecture of Heaven, it gathers figures from different eras
whose lives are marked by mystical revelations and visions of ecstasy that have
led them to a second life, set back from the secular world. The exhibition
brings together sculpture and video installations, as well as a performance to
be held on October 10. The opening of the exhibition, on October 8, will also
be dedicated to the launch of her book, Schismatics.
The exhibition Architecture of Heaven and the performance Digestive System of Humanity: The Mouth are organized by Schizma organization in collaboration with the non-profit SB34, with the support of the Tour à Plomb/City of Brussels, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania and the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
