Emily Hayes' illustration.
On 20th May 2021 Vilnius Academy of Arts (VAA) Faculty of Kaunas' gallery opens Kaunas Illustration Biennial exhibition "JUMP".
The theme of the first illustration biennial - Jump - is open to innovative concepts and experimental forms of expression.
Spend one second in the intuitive space between earth and sky. Is it really not a flight or a moment of levitation? Jump is an infinite platform. An independent fortress. The fastest way to time travel. A shift in the system of energy. Single jump is needed to find yourself in another universe. A getaway? Rotating at a sharp angle? Dancing in a circle? What else can it mean?
