On November 16th ‘Rasų radijas’ gallery invites you all day (from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.) to listen to Donatas Norušis’s works and experience the ‘Intuitive Instructions’ exhibition in a different way. 4 tracks will be played:
But you are in a Church
At times when artists are researching and scientists are creating, engineers are no longer building bridges – they are designing sounds for the machines, which are recording cognition. Our mechanical need to touch the arms of the sounds, to feel the horns of the echo, to hear the hoofing of the empty space. The symbolic Minotaur has been coming and going for centuries. Countless bridges were built for that without closing the way underneath: for the empty volumes, uncoordinated moves, invisible shapes (constantly protruding through the road barriers) and fluid materials flowing under it. At times when artists are analysing and scientists are fantasysing, engineers are no longer designing tunnels – they are developing the sound structures for the walls of noises. We are walking through these undergrounds of silence with someone secretly recording our intuition to the already heard soundtrack. Somewhere in it you can hear a herd of iron cows and bells inside each one of them. We will not be killing the Minotaur today – we will tame this brutally looking, uncanny steer (author of the text Ieva Gražytė).
DONATAS NORUŠIS is currently actively working in the audiovisual field, researching the materiality of sound, symbolism, and its sculptural properties. The first presentations of author’s works took place at light festivals and group exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad.
