“Climbing Invisible Structures: Ritualised Disciplinary Practices in Social Life. Part 3: Žeimiai” is the third part of an exhibition project comprising four venues, and the last one in Lithuania. It presents works of eight artists and an artists’ duo. Repeated as an echo of the previous exhibitions and climbing through different exhibition spaces, this show becomes a ritual itself and extends the climbing maps from art centers to the periphery of cultural history. This time the exhibition is on show at the Žeimiai manor estate.
