On Friday, February 2, the first exhibition of the year opened with “Emilija Skarnulyte”


“Škarnulytė’s poetic audiovisual productions invite the viewer on a meditative journey through our past, present and future,” summarized the curator of the exhibition – Lotte Dinse.

The Lithuanian artist Škarnulytė has created new glass objects and room-specific installations exclusively for the Kunsthaus, which are particularly fascinating due to their oil-shiny mirrored ceilings.

From the seabed on the first floor with sculptures of minerals and mermaid tears, the path leads to the video work t1/2, which takes a foray through places associated with contemporary science and technology: decommissioned nuclear power plants, nuclear submarine channels, a neutrino observatory and the CLOUD experiment at CERN. On the 2nd floor, the work Rakhne provides futuristic insights into the possibilities of data storage in the deep sea.

“The exhibition not only shows an extremely interesting artistic position, but also fits in very well with this year’s focus on current virulent topics,” said Managing Director Dr. Dorle Meyer in her welcoming address, thanking the Lower Saxony Foundation, the Lower Saxony Savings Bank Foundation and Sparkasse Göttingen for their support for this elaborate exhibition in particular. Rolf-Georg Köhler, Chairman of the “Förderkreis Kunsthaus Göttingen e.V.”, which was founded in 2023, rounded off the evening with a presentation and promotion of the association, which is actively involved in the activities of the Kunstquartier and the Kunsthaus.
