This photo was taken in Vancouver, Canada, while visiting The Polygon Gallery, located in Lower Lonsdale. The colored lights seen on the right side of this image are a section of Kevin Schmidt’s Reckless, created for the gallery. The blinking lights wrap around the entire building and are timed to a soundtrack composed by Schmidt.
Too Much Seaweed, 2016
From the press release-
In Barrel of Fortune, his first solo exhibition at CANADA, Bareikis distills his enduring vision into bundled masses. He stacks and wraps cultural objects in fabric and string, building altar-like assemblages shrouded by paint and recognizable trash. The sculptures are propped up by found furniture, wood or aluminum, and exposed to forces like time, gravity, or the elements. Rendered in deep reds, acidic oranges and vintage blues, each work operates like a junkyard relic: a curious portal into another era slowly merging with the local flora. It’s here where Bareikis navigates, somewhere between scientific method and pure psychic automatism, covering his tracks in a role equal parts wandering scientist and mad poet.
