Exhibition “Climbing Invisible Structures: Ritualised Disciplinary Practices in Social Life. Part 3: Žeimiai” on 30th July – 28th August
“Climbing Invisible Structures: Ritualised Disciplinary Practices in Social Life. Part 3: Žeimiai” is the third part of an exhibition project comprising four venues, and the last one in Lithuania. It presents works of eight artists and an artists’ duo. Repeated as an echo of the previous exhibitions and climbing through different exhibition spaces, this show becomes a ritual itself and extends the climbing maps from art centers to the periphery of cultural history. This time the exhibition is on show at the Žeimiai manor estate.

Berglind Jóna takes part with two new works. The sound installation “Stitching and Mending” in collaboration with Dora – Gatis Zakis and Jānis Šipkēvics and the work “Balustrade. Part 2: Bake It”
Gunnhildur Hauksdóttir takes part with an audio installation and a performance, both under the title of “Five Drawings” where five jazz performance students from Academy of Arts in Klaipėda each perform a vocal narrative based on a drawing. During a workshop in November 2015 they trained to see Gunnhildur’s drawings as a score and “read” it, singing for a sculpture that functioned as a binaural microphone. In the recording sessions, the space around the sculpture was defined according to the drawing, and the singers moved around it, vocalising the lines in relation to the sculpture. The work will now be installed and perfromend for the first time.
Vocalists: Grieta Artjuhova, Monta Norkuse, Laurita Oleinikova, Gabrielė Urbonaitė, Jonė Urniežiūtė
