Arnas Anskaitis

Interdisciplinary artist

Arnas Anskaitis is an interdisciplinary artist, in his works he synthesizes experiences from different areas including photography, film, sound art, philosophy and even linguistics. His new video installation Letters from Home reflects on the connections between language and perception: «Writing interests me not only in the context of language but also from the position of handwriting. How did letters of the alphabet emerge? It seems they were shaped by a human hand. What would letters look like, if they were written not on a flat sheet of paper, but in simulated three-dimensional space?» 3D models of cursive letters exhibited as video projections produce a stream of images. Literary and imaginary meaning overlap, with reference to the origin of writing itself, that is one of the fundamental elements of our human identity.

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. Vernissage e artists talk: 5 aprile ore 17.30. With the collaboration of Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea – Mus.e and with TUM associazione culturale (Italia/Italy), Fondazione per lo sviluppo della cultura dell’istruzione della persona (Bielorussia/Belarus), Vilnius Pataphysic Institute (Lituania/Lithuania). Con il patrocinio dell’Ambasciata della Repubblica di Lituana nella Repubblica Italiana e del Consolato della Repubblica Lituana di Firenze.
