We begin our 33978th edition. Sitting in a circle on naked ground we pull last year’s oxygen into our nostrils, and ten thousand tons of fog will soon dissipate.
– What lies ahead if the balls bounce with these numbers: 23, 3, 6, 28, 40, 44, 7, 11, 32, 2.
We keep rolling.
In the city of Lentvaris, the peak of industrial productivity, shaped during the Soviet rule, has long since been put to sleep, and recent times have not yet presented fresh conceptions of identity for this region. A new future is being created for it, drowning in the stream of chance – combinations of bouncing lottery balls promise new perspectives of life and new points of view, you just have to wait for the right moment, to grasp a winning ticket. The curve that marks the variation of luck is not in our hands, an automatic process empowers us to not stop and keep believing.
Artists, researchers, institutions, inclusive / closed communities, collectives were invited to aim for a dialogue with local structures and system: political, economic, socio-cultural or ecological. And then, by employing a variety of methods – to expand the confrontation of forthcoming visions with universal tendencies and cases. Artworks found in various spaces of Lentvaris will not become prototypes for markers of the future; it is, rather, a discussion of today’s tomorrow.
The “2 0 9 0” exhibition is a part of the programme of the project “An open space for creating and exhibitions in Lentvaris”.
