|The Architecture of the Journey -
Irene Izquierdo & Ausra Kleizaite
OUTPUT is proud to present the work of Irene Izquierdo and Aušra Kleizaite as a culmination of their month-long residency at the Invisible Wind Factory in Liverpool supported by CreArt.
this collaboration can no longer be viewed, Irene's video work The
Brick Report can be seen in our gallery until November 28.
Izquierdo is a film maker and interdisciplinary artist from Spain based
in Berlin. Her work is often process-based and site-specific. During
the residency she is developing an experimental video piece inspired by
Liverpool's architecture, walks in public space and conversations with
scousers, and uses bricks as the starting point of her observations.
Kleizaite is a contemporary visual artist from Lithuania, known for
her expressive works on paper which explore the human condition in all
its aspects. Trained as a printmaker and textile artist, she creates
multi-layered drawings depicting nature, culture, relationships,
emotions and everyday life; telling complex stories in simple materials
such as charcoal and soft pastels. During the residency Aušra has been
working on a series of drawings titled Windows. The artist explains
“The perception of windows has expanded recently, from meaning simple
transparent glass panels providing light to a largest computer
operating system. Here, I want to present my own interpretation of the
concept, which is neither transparent nor digital. Still, I hope it
will provide a glimpse into man’s soul.”
