Arnas Anskaitis, Ignas Krunglevičius, Andrej Polukord, Ieva Rojūtė curated by Matteo Innocenti in collaboration with Adrius Pocius, Alesia and Yuliya Savitskaya As Second episode of The GLOBAL IDENTITIES cicle, A certain identity is a project that brings together artists of different nationalities to express themselves about identity issues. The first exhibition of the project, presents the young Lithuanian artists Arnas Anskaitis, Ignas Krunglevičius, Andrej Polukord, Ieva Rojūtė. The certain , as an integral part of the title, in Italian “certa”, takes on a double meaning: as an adjective it is synonymous with certainty, the identity which we can undoubtedly recognize, as an alternative it is also an indefinite adjective, without quality or quantity, indicating an identity that is possible among many others. Four artists of a particular nationality are chosen by the curator of the project in collaboration with the museums or the Fine Arts Academy of the respective countries to “represent”, according to the particular inclination of their research and culture of origin, the factor of identity through such exhibition. The history and geographic location of Lithuania makes it significant both for the question of identity and for that of the borders and relations within the continent. Since the Republic of Lithuania, like the other Baltic countries, has built itself in a dual movement of independence and annexation, between Russia and Europe – where is been a member since 2004 -. 2018 also marks the centenary of the nation’s independence, which took place in February 1918 and The constitution of the Republic.
