NICOLAS BOURRIAUD – a curator of anniversary Kaunas Biennial

Posted in: News

virginija_vitkiene_nicolas_bourriaud_at_his_director_office Kaunas Bienial Board is glad to announce Nicolas Bourriaud as a curator of 10th Kaunas Biennial, which will take place through September – December, 2015 in Kaunas (Lithuania).

THE SHROUD OF TIME

Posted in: News

dsc_0459_0 THE SHROUD OF TIME – Lithuanian contemporary textile art exhibition was opened at Kaunas Picture Gallery this Friday (14th November, 2014). The exhibition offers a view of contemporary culture in two overlapping dimensions: materiality (as warps) and the flow of time (as wefts). The shroud, if we are to think along the metaphorical lines of the Shroud of Turin, marks culture, heritage, customs, habits and beliefs. From a material perspective it plays an integral part in its tactile relationship to our body: enveloping, wrapping, protecting, concealing, bandaging or simply being there. In these categories time is the connecting, experiential and site-specific link. Thus, in this Lithuanian textile collection the metaphor of the shroud of time surfaces as a reflection of life and history through tactile, readily available mediums, such as textiles, lace, needlework, thread and clothing. The title of the exhibition was determined by observation of Lithuanian artists’ practice over the last three years, which has shown that the meanings of the works are influenced by textile tools or their symbolic values.

COMPANIONSHIP – A NEW CONCEPT IN THE CULTURAL GLOSSARY OF TERMS?

Posted in: News

Le Carreau du Temple From 24th to 28th April together with my colleague Ana Čižauskienė we participated in an international seminar “Young Creation Companionship” held in Paris. The meeting place was quite extraordinary: artists and cultural sector workers (event producers and artist managers) from eight European countries (France, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Sweden, Lithuania, Spain and Greece) were invited to the opening of a brand new cultural centre Le Carreau du Temple, which has received endless publicity. The French certainly realise what public spaces are and should be as well as their, as community members, right to them: there were queues throughout the whole weekend with people hoping to get a glimpse inside the new cultural centre. The new multifunctional building, which will be administered by Mezzanine Spectacles organisation, has more than 6,000 square meters of space with theatre and dance studios as well as a sports hall, a recording studio, spaces for workshops, cafes, a concert hall and a black box for theatre productions. The institution is partly supported by the municipality of the city of Paris and partly by projects and leasing of premises for concerts and theatre events. This model of partial support has become commonplace in most European cultural institutions. Since it’s opening in May 2014 Le Carreau du Temple will exist as an incubator for interdisciplinary initiatives by young European artists as well as a platform for international projects. Read more
