‘Twilight’, the fifth Soros CAC Lithuania annual exhibition, was a project of contemporary art that flourished and functioned in the dark. ‘Twilight’ was an international exhibition of art created on the basis of new technologies, and namely of art, the disclosure of which requires specific exhibition conditions: darkened premises, complex computing, sound and view devices, and, naturally, an uninterrupted supply of energy…
‘Twilight’ was not only a physical (of darkened premises) but also a conceptual shell of the exhibition.
It was a reflection of the political, social, and, undoubtedly, cultural twilight of the ‘Enlightened Age’.
It was an attempt to perceive another side of culture, which is mostly unseen or ignored in broad daylight. ‘Twilight’ was a possibility of night vision, a glance at the depth of city subculture, at the things which take place in specific everyday surroundings, in the world of advertising, intoxicants and strange encounters as well as in virtual reality – in the world of digital ethics and aesthetics.
‘Twilight’ was the state of uncertainty and doubt. It was a glance at the deceptive silence of the city, when the day ends and the time of twilight comes.
