The Lack of Serenity
EXHIBITION THE PATH | TAKAS
Materials: Wooden stands, aluminum loudspeakers "Gr-1", vacuum tube amplifier and record player in a wooden box, a fragment of the recording of the show "Labanakt vaikučiams” (“Good night kids”), which plays the lullaby "Dėdė Miegas” (“Uncle Sleep") created by L. Vilkončius and V. Palčinskaitė, wires
The state of uncertainty and the observation of brute power form a strange reality that is full of elusive menace. Propaganda messages, designed to reassure the public, are constantly deepening this state.
The lullaby, broadcasted through the Гр-1 loudspeakers that were used for public spaces in Soviet times, came from my childhood. To recreate the authentic sound of those times, I have built a tube amplifier using vacuum tubes and other Soviet-made parts. The feeling from my childhood now takes on a different meaning. Although deceptive peace may help you survive, it also clouds the mind.
