PROJECT "ART TERMINAL"
Art terminal is a device developed by Lithuanian curators and critics Ignas Kazakevičius and Vidas Poškus, who designed it to learn and spread art. It is a cyborg/robot, a real „aesthetic terminator“ that stimulates one`s interactive perception of art history. The essence of its work is to devise a simple formula based on coordinative intersection of art aspects (so-called stereotypes). The terminal presents Lithuanian contemporary art scene and its sixteen stereotypes – the phenomena and artists who, in one or another way, represent nothing but „merry melancholy“. So the terminal also resembles an art review written in a quite non-traditional manner – the critical mix of independent texts analyzing the merry melancholy in Lithuanian art, or merry melancholy and Lithuanian art.
The project is on show at gallery "Meno forma", Savanorių str. 166, Kaunas, Lithuania, 16 09 2015 - 10 10 2015
