Nomeda and Gediminas Urbonas produce interactive projects exploring the conflicts and contradictions of former Soviet republics and their recent transition to capitalism.
Born in Lithuania and now living in Vilnius, these artists use the city as a catalyst and a starting point for their analysis of the various impacts caused by a new economic, social and political model on different sectors and generations in society. Their work engages in what belongs to the everyday, to the public and political social space and, though these are pieces that focus on local issues in Lithuania, they are imbued with a symbolism that extends their significance to embrace other societies that have experienced other expressions of modernity over the 20th century.
