Let them in, then delete the door.

The forest of artificial sun is full of butterflies Whispering about life.
Call me…
Ocelli eyes Throat’s for suction.
Not all butterflies live just for one day.

  On the 28th of February, 2020, Friday, 6:30 PM, KCCC Exhibition Hall (Didžioji Vandens str. 2, Klaipėda) invited you to the opening of “Is She Coming?“, a group exhibition by four young contemporary female media artists –
Agnė Masilionytė,
Austėja Masliukaitė,
Saulė Miežytė
and Aistė Marija Stankevičiūtė.

 

  The event opened with Saulė Miežytė’s performance “Melanin print”.
  The exhibition suggests looking into the questions raised by the generation that witnessed the rise of Youtube and grew up in the age of endless browsing. It seeks to reveal their creative reflections on the today’s hybridising processes – the dissolving borders of the body, gender, the phenomena of pop culture, different media and their perception. The (un)real situations – desires and imagination, simulation and stimulation – are intertwined here. Saulė Miežytė’s artificial sun installation; Aistė Marija Stankevičiūtė’s computer generated vocalisation of pleasure and/or pain; Agnė Masilionytė’s cyber lurking around the doxyspotting’s streets; Austėja Masliukaitė’s questioned desires objectivised within a no longer edible lollipop. Exhibition “Is She Coming?” is a walk around a space that may simultaneously be seen as an exterior and an interior, a hallway sliding between reality and virtuality, between actuality and the imaginary. “Is she coming?” is an impulse and a question for this exhibition-excurse, inspired by the name of one of the artist’s work.
