Artapes. Silence and Rituals
video gallery – free entrance for all from Tuesday to Friday and every first Sunday of the month
curated by Paola Ugolini
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 works.
The show, organised by the Institute of Lithuanian Culture and Contemporary Art Centre and financed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania, is made up of videos created by different generations of Lithuanian artists, from the 90s to the present day, and is divided into two parts. The first part of the programme focusses on the ways in which identity (of the individual, of groups, of nations and of places) is expressed and (de)constructed. The second part is composed of works in which the artists distance themselves from the exploration of the real world, extending the potential of the medium to more subjective aesthetic ends and experimenting with new modes of narration.
