At Display, Berlin
An informal Christmas celebration with the show of 2 editorial projects and other graphic works, by Indre & Laura Klimaite.
Have you ever seen a sea of broken hearts? What if your dog becomes a man-eater? Does divorce turn you into a miserable stalker?
Can you make the difference between mass media headlines and soap-opera scenarios? With Unhappy Love, Laura Klimaite investigates the field of distortion of reality through the lens of the most important Lithuanian newspaper. She collected the headlines every day for one year and concentrated her study on aesthetic and specific language used to reveal the main news. www.lauraklimaite.com
THE SYSTEM is here for you and you are here for THE SYSTEM.
“On continuous and systematic nutrition improvement” is a continuation of Indre Klimaite’s project and the publication of Canteen Guide 2009. It is a narrative of human culture within a system. It is insider view that lifts sheets to ideology mechanism, it’s propaganda and practice. This publication extends history and itself becomes a plan for tomorrow. The research itself is based on textual and visual materials collected from Soviet public catering books between 1935 until 1990. Material spans over a broad range of documents, from official sanitation memorandum to archeological photographs, from woman liberation slogans to dish-washing instructions, from technical plans for the classification of potatoes to dinner room schemes, from soviet gastronomy recipes to sanitary norms and measures to fight rodents and microbes. Human life as a never stopping potato washing machine. Indre Klimaite, www.klimaiteklimaite.com
