Monika Janulevičiūtė and Antanas Lučiūnas’s work as an artistic duo and are based in Vilnius. In their first international exhibition together, they will present their performance GIRLISONFIRE: Dedicating to the sick and blooming. Layering an 8-channel sound installation, two floral scent compounds, and a scaffold setting together, their live performance will play with a mixture of exhaustion, adventure and constant visual stimulation: A is on a hike in the Tatra Mountain constantly texting, while M is at home wanting to watch a documentary on volcanoes in Hawaii. Realities overlap and timelines shift. The duo attempt to exercise spatial understandings where these factors are not just plain backdrops but constructed, enforced, conditions of life and co-dependency. At times these determinants are personal, sometimes communal and normalised contingencies. Janulevičiūtė and Lučiūnas explore the vernacular as a new type of language, examining paradoxical intimacies of the digital and physical space.

– “Dualism and its corollary – What is sexual deviancy?”
– “I was 8 years old, I was chatting to a stranger online and suddenly a concept
of being used appears in my mind; I lie that I’m 12.”

The performance piece is developed in conjunction with the Rupert Alternative Education Programme as a continuation of their project The Great Outdoors: GIRLISONFIRE presented in December 2017 at CAC Vilnius.
