Eglė Budvytytė. Skateboard Prayer, or Head Below the Heart
Curators: Virginija Januškevičiūtė and Rūta Junevičiūtė
2016.04.28–05.18
Skateboard Prayer, or Head Below the Heart is an exhibition organised around a daily ritual, featuring seven performers who slowly trace a route through the spaces of the CAC. Their practice – a choreography of gestures reminiscent of various spiritual traditions – carries them to and through various states of inwardness, intimacy, playfulness and humbleness. Through gestures of care they embrace their interdependency, remaining mostly indifferent to the presence of audience. The ritual starts daily at 6pm and lasts an hour. During the opening night the audience is invited to attend a ‘suspended’ version of the piece.
