About the exhibition

What does a work of art begin with? What is a point of departure for an artist?

Artworks of six contemporary artists in the show of the Small Hall tell individual stories. Schlagbaum (English: Boom Barrier) by A. Polukord creates an obstacle for a passer-by, the vision of Vilnius city by L. Parulskis  is unveiled in a fast food café, whereas the photographs of G. M. Kinčinaitytė  invite you to wander between the canyons of Mars and Earth. Special interactive objects have been created for each artwork. After touching, lifting or activating them in different ways, the visitor will hear the artists’ stories about the starting points in their creative processes.

A trip through artworks and interactive objects is like a small adventure, a game, which gives you an opportunity to discover differences or similarities between personal interpretations and artists’ original thoughts. Themes developed in the works reveal the distances between personal, social and cultural experiences of the creators.
