Saulius Vaitiekūnas is a recognizable, but also unpredictable artist, whose work combines more forms of expression: small stone and metal sculpture, jewelry, monumental sculptural objects and conceptual installations. One of the main materials used by the artist is stone, which combines archaism and modernity. The works of S. Vaitiekūnas are full of references about the processes taking place in our society – the absurdity of politics, ecology, the challenges of emigration. Conceptual, unique works of the artist are loved by those who value authenticity, purity, integrity, and harmony. Artist S. Vaitiekūnas is a participant in many exhibitions and art projects in Lithuania, his works are exhibited in galleries in Japan, Italy, Israel, Holland and other countries.
About the gallery
“Terra recognita” is a space that has been developed for more than ten years and is constantly renewed, where the works of the artist Saulius Vaitiekūnas are exhibited. “Terra recognita” means “recognized land”. The name and motto “real, simple, eternal” came from the artist’s love and respect for the stone. Works from sea-polished stone, flint and silver are transformed into “ritual items”, ex-votos, watches, buttons and other objects that decorate and speak to the human body and soul. The exposition is purposeful, restrained, aesthetically coherent. As a result, the gallery itself looks like an independent work of art. in 2015 The Vilnius Gallery was included in the list of 10 must-visit Vilnius galleries compiled by the London “Culture trip”. We invite you to our gallery in Vilnius. Visit and recognize your land in the works of artist Saulius Vaitiekūnas.
