Armenian Medieval Churches and Monasteries

2017 09 19 – 2017 10 19

The photo exhibition of Armenian medieval churches in both modern day Armenia and in the historic home of Armenian people offers a brief and precious glimpse into the mysterious world of Armenian spirituality. Weather-beaten, dilapidated buildings, mossy cross-stones on a mountainous plateau, and sometimes a colorful burst of young people in stylish clothes in front of an ancient monastery. The visual images can be seen as an almost tangible symbol of past and present, illustrating the rich historical and spiritual heritage of Armenia, the first Christian state in the world.

The exhibition is built on the contrast principle: the martyrdom and pastor’s dignity of the Blessed Archbishop Teofilius Matulionis is revealed as if in a mirror, through objects that accompanied the archbishop in different periods of his life, reflecting one another.

2017 05 23 – 2017 09 16

On 5 April 2016, a fire destroyed the Church of the Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ceikiniai, which was an excellent example of the tendencies of eighteenth-century sacral wooden architecture. Along with the treasures that have survived the fire in the Ceikiniai church, works by the prominent Lithuanian textile artist Monika Žaltauskaitė-Grašienė are presented in the exhibition. In her works woven in the digital jacquard technique, the artist uses the language of contemporary art which shows that the heritage transformed by devastating fire can arouse strong emotions and reveal a live relation to the past.
