The CAC Reading Room invites you to the opening of Kazimieras Sližys’s solo exhibition “GIF” on Friday, 20 April, 7 pm.
“GIFs today are about the archive. They move to resurrect the past as much as finally to return to it; they focus on a moment, freezing an event while simultaneously trying to keep it living, as effervescent as ever. Sometimes the difference lies in a fraction of a second. The true GIF celebrates imperfection, where flickers and flawed loops maintain the possibility of something different — something alive — entering the picture.”
