About The Artwork

Knight or rider symbolizes victory of humankind against evil. It is an abstract artwork casted in bronze by the author himself. It is made in plastic language of positive negative forms avoiding unnecessary details, thus exploiting important sculptural features. Furthermore, it is the coat of arms of Lithuania, the Vytis, has been with the life and deeds of the nation for over six hundret years. At present, the Vytis represents Lithuania around the word in the same way as a brand does.

I am Kunotas Vildziunas. Born in 1969 in Vilnius, Lithuania. I am a sculptor and director of Vilnius Jeruzalem Art Center. A form of sculpture is created or so to speak "closed" by means of several minimal tense movements (suppose joining three sheets of steel) and several resulting strong edges, but at the same time preserving a peaceful and contemplative inner state of mind. As my father, also a sculptor Vladas Vildžiūnas once said, "This minimalism (little means much is the essence of minimalism) gives rise to incredible freedom and expressiveness of form". I am related to my father's works in the same way my father has been related to Lithuanian folk sculpture. In my turn I make use of father's separate plastic fragments of sculpture and sometimes taking great risks strives for the synthesis of abstraction and a concrete Baroque form. Thus, my minimalistic sculpture represents another stage of development when a fragment acts as a form, independent and powerful. There is hardly any direct link between my artworks and folk sculpture. But the atmosphere you feel in the photos of my studio and garden with works and Baroque architecture by which Lithuanian folk sculpture had been developing suggest about the existence of indirect but inevitable relation. There are no doubts concerning my affection for Baroque. In my pieces of sculpture produced for the project Signs of Vilnius the forms of Baroque architecture have been replaced by the Baroque symbols, originating from the heraldry of the noblemen in the 17th century Great Duchy of of Lithuania. These already purified forms symbolising the concrete worldly power (The Royal Apple) and celestial realm(Ship-Arch) are transformed in unexpected contexts, sizes materials (enlarged to gigantic measurements together with another four pieces made to be displayed on the bridges of Vilnius) acquire completely new and unexpected meanings and sound vibrations.
