The 11th edition of the Baltic Triennial of International Art is taking a turn to a more condensed format: a 12-day event focused exclusively on performance and film. Countering the tendency of biennials to be pluralist, all-encompassing multi-platforms, the curators have chosen to present the contributions of artists through a radically minimized vessel: a single human being.
Mindaugas, who has one of the most common Lithuanian male names (literally ‘much fame’ or ‘one who has many ideas’), is the medium through which the artists will channel their works. He will appear each day throughout the Triennial, animated by different instructions, scripts, scenarios, and scores by the participating artists to be played out in the city of Vilnius or nearby surrounding areas.
