TAKAS | THE PATH
Individual artists can participate in the annual exhibition of sculpture performances and installations TAKAS (The Path) with their project. Takas is a curated competition exhibition in which works are selected from the submitted applications by the curator of TAKAS. Only works of art in the category of sculptures, installations and performances can participate in the exhibition TAKAS.
For the third year, it is curated by the artist, curator, and head of the Sculpture Department of Vilnius Academy of Arts, doc. Vytenis Burokas. The exhibition will present 16 individual projects by artists.
From the curator Vytenis Burokas:
Like every year, we will visit ArtVilnius fair again and, most likely, we will follow one path or another. This year’s Path will also include well-known national artists – Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė, the author of the best installation at last year’s ArtVilnius’22 Žygimantas Augustinas, and Eglė Rakauskaitė. The audience will have the opportunity to get to know the variety of genres and materials of the younger generation of artists.
We will encounter our own and others’ bodies in their changing states in an installation based on the endurance of the body by dancer and choreographer Aira Naginevičiūtė. We will have the opportunity to observe the changes in the encephalogram (EEG) that occur when performance artist Maria Griniuk experiences the works of other artists at the fair. This may be clear evidence that artworks have a tangible effect on us as observers.
