Lina Lapelytė and Salomėja Petronytė in exhibition “Vorsprung durch Technik” closing event: an evening with a song “Audi Vis” and the Choir of Vilnius Academy of Arts


On 26 November, the last day of the exhibition “Vorsprung durch Technik”, a closing event will take place at Atletika gallery. A song titled “Audi Vis” will be performed by the Choir of Vilnius Academy of Arts, arranged by exhibiting artists Lina Lapelytė (member of LIAA) and Salomėja Petronytė.  

Lina Lapelytė (b. 1984) – artist living and working in Vilnius and London. In her work she combines several disciplines, delves into performativity and its various forms and manipulates the boundaries of genres. Lapelytė combines elements of popular music and opera with folk rituals and the culture of modern everyday life.

Salomėja Petronytė (b. 1998) is currently studying Chamber Singing at Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. She is also developing her practice as a composer by composing for various Lithuanian choirs and vocal collectives. She was a music assistant and soloist of the opera-performance Sun & Sea in the Lithuanian pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2019. Since 2020 she is touring around the world with this project.

Group exhibition Vorsprung durch Technik is an interdisciplinary collaboration and an installation by six Lithuanian artists, actively working in Lithuania and abroad. In this exhibition the works complement each other by creating a coherent narrative, in which the manifestations of community creativity are examined using Audi as a certain phenomenon of yard culture. The exhibition also looks at how certain narratives from the community become mythologized – they become part of the general cultural consciousness. An important feature of this narrative is interactivity – visitors will be invited to participate in the artistic game through works that can be turned on or clicked. Humour and light irony act as a seam connecting the individual elements of this show.In this installation the multifunctional sign of Audi functions as a social prism, which allows to raise questions in the artistic context about the supposed contradictions and multiple overlapping points between the “high” and “low” cultures.

Exhibiting artists: Ona Juciūtė, Lina Lapelytė and Salomėja Petronytė, Paulius Petraitis, Andrej Polukord, Rokas Pralgauskas

Curators: Paulius Petraitis, Rokas Pralgauskas
