9th Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT

Deadline: September 15, 2012 (EMAIL)

9th Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT
Kaunas Artists' Support Fund

Kaunas, Lithuania
2013 09 13 – 2013 12 31.

The 9th Kaunas Biennial UNITEXT will create conditions for immediate collisions of an artwork and a spectator, allowing the experience of art as a universal text. Curators of the exhibition together with artists will pursue a concept that is new and unfamiliar in a cultural context and will consolidate it by presenting practical examples. We will go into the question of a unitext, which is the latest link in work -> text -> intertext -> hypertext -> unitext semiotic chain of a philosophic / art criticism / artistic field.

According to the consistency of this chain the UNITEXT exhibition claims a privilege to present novel ideas about the art at the level of structural and notional revelation. The suggestion is to perceive unitext in this chain as a universal artistic language, which unifies different experiences and concepts. The exhibition will provide a unique voice for each artwork instead of handling this task to explanatory texts. We believe artworks themselves are suggestive, influential and complete enough. We invite artists to present works experiences of which are based on a direct confrontation with an object / space / semantic field.

We invite to you present unitexts, which are seen through intuition, materiality, spontaneity, sensuality, feeling, here and now experiences.
