In the beginning of October a new guest has arrived to Nida Art Colony – French artist Alice Pamuk.
Alice Pamuk's work is of a delicate and imperceptible kind. It is often encountered through performance, sound installations and writing but mostly through a form of translation of language and it's experience. Finding within the realm of physical experiences the formal impossibility is often transmuted by a simple twist of imagination. The acute transformed experience albeit simple and uncanny often triggers a paradox between the humorous and the conceptual.
During her residency at Nida, Alice Pamuk will be researching empirical ways to achieve high sound quality. She noticed that when you dig into what high sound quality is, concepts of wealth and poorness are strangely imbricated. By inventing new ways to realize a sophisticated and aseptic sound, she will question the listening standards through which our audio world is mediated.

It's been some time now that the boundaries of contemporary architecture and urbanism research and creative practice have been expanding if compared with the approaches and views of the twentieth century. Despite this, in the field of Lithuanian architectural and city research the current tendencies and practices are little known and narrowly applied.
Thus, with the goal of broadening the field of research methods and approaches and experimental artistic practices, Architecture department of Vilnius Academy of Arts has initiated a yearly seminar & workshop "ArXYZoom". During a week long event scientists, artistic research specialists as well as practitioners of experimental - interdisciplinary artistic research methods will share their methods and practices with the MA and PhD students, young researchers and educators from the field of architecture.
The lectures will be presented by lecturers Benjamin Cope and Miodrag Kuc. The event is curated by Tomas Grunskis. You can find the preliminary plan of the week here.
The event is organized and supported by the Vilnius Academy of Arts and Research Council of Lithuania. Lectures and seminars will take place in Nida Art Colony of VAA from the 13th to 20ht of October 2014.
