Rupert and Autarkia presents a new event cycle “Articulations”

Rupert and Autarkia present Articulations, a new cycle of events.

Rupert, a centre for art, residencies and education, together with Autarkia, an artist day care centre, invites you to dive into conversations about art in a new event cycle titled “Articulations”.

These events will open a possibility to informally meet Rupert’s current artists-in-residence and discover their work. Throughout the evening, Autarkia’s sister restaurant “Delta mityba” invites.

First event – 23 March, 19:00 at Autarkia (Naugarduko st. 41, Vilnius).

The first edition of Articulations will intertwine audiovisual stories from Rupert’s current resident artists about their practices and conversations, followed by a special menu item from “Delta mityba”.

This event features filmmaker and designer Emilia Tapprest (Finland/Netherlands), poetry and performance maker Barnett Cohen (USA) and artist duo Marissa Lee Benedict and David Reuter (USA/Netherlands).

In 2022, Emilia presented her dance project “Scent of Time” on the topics of exile, changing worldviews and the right to self-determination. The premiere was held in Bologna and was accompanied by a special exhibition and a public programme. In her works, she explores how designed systems, infrastructures and connections affect us in “affective’’, preconscious ways.

Barnett came to Lithuania from New York’s The Center for Performance Research, where he introduced his performative text-based movement performance “noposition nolocation”. His anti-disciplinary practice proposes a kaleidoscopic queer surrealism.

Marissa and David recently presented their audiovisual work “a conversation between machines about Mallarmé (regarding the state of the gallery lights)”. Together they create site-adapted videos, sculptures, and drawings that intercept objects and processes, extending beyond one’s peripheral vision.

JL Murtaugh (artistic director, Autarkia)

I’m very pleased to help guide this shared programming vision of Autarkia and Rupert to reality. The consistent flow of accomplished, talented artists through Rupert’s residency programme for over a decade is a huge asset to Vilnius and Lithuania more broadly. I’ve been very fortunate to meet with many of them these last few years, and look forward to the Articulations series building more and firmer connections between these residents and this city’s excellent and motivated artistic community.
