Artapes. Fast-forwarded. Selected Lithuanian video works since the 1990s
video gallery – free entrance until full capacity
curated by Ūla Tornau e Asta Vaičiulytė
To mark the occasion of Flux. Lithuanian festival of the arts, taking place in Rome between 4th and 15th May and celebrating the centenary of Lithuania’s restored statehood, artapes, a programme of screenings delivered in collaboration with In Between Art Film, is dedicating its new appointment to a presentation of a selection of Lithuanian video works.
The video programme, organised by the Lithuanian Culture Institute and Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius and financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania, spans the period from the 1990s to today. It comprises the work of several generations of artists and is divided into two parts that reveal slightly different foci in chosen artistic interests and strategies. The first part of the programme centres on the ways identities (of individuals, groups, nations and places) are performed and (de)constructed. The second part consists of works in which artists distance themselves from the exploration of the real world; expanding the medium’s possibilities for more subjective aesthetic ends and experimenting with how things can be narrated.
