International contemporary art festival "KAUNAS IN ART. SO CLOSE. SO FAR"

Date: 19 October 2018 00:00 - 25 November 2018 00:00

 

M. Žilinskas Art Gallery, Nepriklausomybės a. 12, Kaunas

 

International contemporary art festival "KAUNAS IN ART. SO CLOSE. SO FAR"  exhibition.

So far as a dream. Or far away as an earthquake for those, living in Lithuania – as teachers taught at school, Lithuania “is not in seismic zone”. So far, as so awaited adulthood for a teenager, which does not come quick enough. Close, as sudden growing old. Close as roaring thunder for the one, who is afraid of the lightening. Close, as two and half an hour flight from London to Lithuania.

Alienation of the neighbors. And identification with people from far away countries, let’s say after watching a movie about their traditions, where same family values were found. Notions close and far are perceived individually. It is a choice to perceive the distance according to inner interest, personal state, mood. Sometimes it is conscious choice. Most often – no. But the moment of recognition is important factor of perception and the SENSE of commonality brings nearer.
