The project is the continuation of Gilyté’s theoretical research (personal development as a performative practice) and her previous Instagram-based durational work, using various mainstream positive psychology tools in order to improve my personal and professional life as well as attract success in the art field. It conceptually had to end with institutional acceptance, which happened in 2020.

Neuroplasticity or I Love You Gertrūda

For this digital residency, Gilytė has produced a series of new photographs of the scarf series, now on display within her solo Agora Digital Art x Metaxu Studio exhibition space. Just as the bright green and vivid text of Gilytė’s scarves reference the highlighter hues that dominated design and fashion trends in 2021, much of this photography series playfully references fashion photography trends. The photos explore the scarves in context, examining how both the artist and others interact with the art object. The photography series is accompanied by a bespoke audio performance recorded by Gilytė for this residency, The New Sincerity (2022). For this solo exhibition, Gilytė invites us into a meandering neon green tunnel, encapsulating us within the scarf’s knitted zeitgeist.
