REWIND INTO THE FUTURE
Kaunas Biennial TEXTILE 11: REWIND-PLAY-FORWARD
September 22 to December 31, 2011
The 8th international Kaunas Biennial TEXTILE 11: REWIND-PLAY-FORWARD will be based on the concept of repeated time / retold story. Repetition (REWIND) is understood in the context of the exhibition as a re-coding of events, while coming back to the beginning or the origins. The biennial will return to the historical practices and archetype connotations of textile by reconceptualising and postproducing them in the context of contemporary art and various media practices.
REWIND will analyse the intertwining of the flow of time and the changing concept of art by (re)telling a story(ies) through the exhibitions based on reflecyions of the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE:
THE PAST: a reinterpretation of the concept of textile as formed by the history of art (exhibition REWIND HISTORY);
THE PRESENT: artists’ personal stories are actualised through textile connotations (exhibition REWIND PERSONAL STORY);
THE FUTURE: scientific (smart and high-tech textile) and artistic experiments (exhibition REWIND INTO THE FUTURE).
REWIND INTO THE FUTUREIs an experimental exhibition attempting to reveal the most recent advances in high technology and smart textile. The exhibition curated by an international team will present the newest discoveries of science and examples of contemporary art using innovative technologies related to textile. The interactive exhibition and creative laboratories, which will provide many surprises for curious seekers of novelties, will be accompanied by a seminar during which scientists, artists from all over the world and biennial visitors will share their creative ideas and inspirations.
