Vaida Tamoševičiūtė: Body of Mother

at Undercurrent

Warning: Adult content

“Everything I do is an attempt to find my own reality,” says Vaida Tamoševičiūtė and perharps this best reflects the artist’s relationship with her work, which is live and constantly revised. Co-organized by Undercurrent and Meno Parkas Gallery, Body of Mother is an exhibition of performance videos on motherhood.

Tamoševičiūtė’s work vulnerably surveys her own feelings and articulates the transformations she experiences – bodily and spiritually. Frictions permeate: personal expectations versus societal, survival as artist/self while becoming a mother, and the perceptions of the individual in the age-long chain of mothers-daughters-mothers.

The intimacy of performance is the absolute medium to engage this topic; the body itself is the means of expression. Gifted to motherhood, the body as a tool for art and the creative process simultaneously return itself to the artist — the work is whole/complete.

Motherhood is personal and universal, everyone is touched by it in one way or another. Vaida Tamoševičiūtė’s work purifies/distills this idea until it becomes a metaphor, sometimes expressed in a painfully direct way, Tamoševičiūtė evokes the entire spectrum of feelings with the audience.
