“The eyes are most sensitive to red”: Geistė Marija Kinčinaitytė & James Wilkie


“The eyes are most sensitive to red” – is an experiential space created to present Geistė M Kinčinaitytė’s project “Bodies Inside Out”, which explores articulations of corporeality in contemporary artists’ moving image installations that aim at intensifying emotional and bodily sensations. The baroque aesthetics and logic defined in Gille Deleuze’s “The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque” (1993) functions as a device exploring an intimate and dynamic movement between the viewer, image, and screen. This research has been presented in Rome in 2016 and Paris in 2017 at the conferences for cinema and media aesthetics.

For “The eyes are most sensitive to red”, composer James Wilkie has created a sound installation by responding to algorithms’ reactions to the luminosity of the projected image and screen surface. Like water, the image spills out of the frame and generates a space through sound.

Geistė Marija Kinčinaitytė is a London-based artist who is interested in researching emerging complexities of our corporeal experience in the contemporary landscape of media technologies. She investigates interplays between the body, image and medium through her practice in photography and moving image. Geistė is a graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London, and holds a BA in Media and Communications (Photography) and an MA in Film and Screen Studies. She has a forthcoming exhibition at Prospekto Gallery, Vilnius in March 2018. Recent solo exhibitions include; “You Belong to Me”, Fotogalleriet, Oslo; The European Commission, London; Kaunas Photography Gallery, Kaunas. Group shows include “Body and Darkness”, Galerija Vartai, Vilnius; “Taken Territories”, Inside-Out Art Museum, Beijing; “The Body of the Letter”, Sodų 4, Vilnius; “FreshFaced+WildEyed 2014”, The Photographers’ Gallery, London
