Virtual tour of the exhibition "Why Is It Hard to Love?"
We invite you to a virtual tour of the exhibition “Why is It Hard to Love?” curated by Dutch multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke and one of the most distinctly original and important film directors of our time, Peter Greenaway. The exhibition becomes a work of art itself as Greenaway and Boddeke presents site-specific immersive installations in relation to the highlights of Lithuanian contemporary art from the MO Museum and other collections.
Why Is It Hard to Love? is a story of how we, as humans, strive for equilibrium in life by arranging the good and the bad, eliminating differences between the poor and the rich as well as the unsatisfactory inequalities between men and women, the antagonism between the young and the old, the friction between the races. The works by some of the most prominent Lithuanian artists are also exhibited and thus a local narrative of violent historical circumstances, occupations and liberations and drastic social changes emerges.
The exhibition is like a movie
Exhibition “Why Is It Hard to Love?” very cinematic. All the elements are important: light, sound, image, even a rain installation. Of course, we cannot convey all the elements of light and sound in this tour, but the works in the exhibition are purposefully captured in the original exhibition lighting. So, don’t be surprised that the lighting may change and some of the creations may be reflected.
Also, don’t miss the main video installation, the story of Susa Bubble that was inspired by the artist’s daughter Pip. You will find the video story in a virtual tour in the room in front of the spiral staircase of the MO Museum.
