Documentation of the first “Articulations” event

On 23 March, Rupert and “Autarkia” presented a new event cycle “Articulations”.

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

This event featured

Filmmaker and designer EMILIA TAPPREST (Finland/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.


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.

Poetry and performance maker BARNETT COHEN (USA):

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.
