In his solo exhibition at Galerie Fons Welters, Zilvinas Landzbergas shows us certain transformations. Familiar genres such as landscape, still life, and portraiture are subtly interlaced. One wall of the gallery, for instance, has psychodelic wallpaper that initially looks like Op-Art. As they approach, viewers are struck by an almost auditory 'buzz'. While the pattern itself creates an illusory third dimension and suggests perspective, real ornaments corroborate the illusion. A still life is created by the addition of an extra dimension from which we leave the landscape. The actual characteristics of the superimposed genres overlap and are extended in time and space.
Another wall encloses a small space; we look inside and see several rooms. It is not clear how large they are, or exactly what is happening there. They almost seem to represent a thought-space in which we see 'Now', but without being able to look round the corner at the future or the past. The light in the space guides us. We turn around, partly consciously, partly unconsciously, to the rest of the gallery. Our memory plays tricks on us, and the still life we have just seen stays with us only in fragments.
