    "all began as a wordplay. in the summer of 1965, simone de beauvoir, came to nida with jean paul sartre. this was part of a week-long trip to lithuania, organized by the soviets. not much is known about her experiences in nida, save for a few lines in the memoir. here we find out that simone de beauvoir was particularly taken by the dunes and the sea.

    another reference relates to simon peter, one of the most famous fishermen of all time. nida is still remembered for local fishing industry, but it is gradually dying. the figure of simon haunts this utopian landscape, because he, like the fishermen of nida, abandoned usual business. ailed for faith and castigated for betrayal, simon is an intruiging companion.

    this walk brings together the two figures, because both invoke the question about distance and memory, faith and doubt, bodies and relationships. the project is a dreamlike quest for neither simon or simone in particular. rather it is an opportunity to wonder about encounters with strangers and how they affect us."

    Exhibition "Own Territories", organized by VAA Nida Art Colony is opening in the most beautiful of Lithuania's national parks, in the Curonian spit, in the context of Thomas Mann festival. The festivals theme - "In Search for Homeland" - was inspired by the book by Czesław Miłosz. Thomas Mann along with Czesław Miłosz are two world-renowned writers, a German and a Polish, that have worked and lived in Lithuania in their time (Thoman Mann has spent a few summers in Nida, while Czesław Miłosz as a child lived in the northern part of Lithuania). Both of them loved their homeland, but given the politic circumstances, their rapport with their homeland was a problematic one.

    Exhibition adresses all of the surrounding contexts - that of the nature, the culture-political, the artistic-creative, with an attempt to find some uniting threads. The main subject of the exhibition is so called "homeland" - a territory that we perceive, feel and define as ours. "Home" might be a cosy nest as well as gigantic political constructs, such as the state, even the communities as those of soccer fans, or scientific truths that give us the feeling of security.

    The defense of ones own territory is more often than not binded with conflict - it might be football fan riot, a scandal between the neighbors, scientific dispute or wars consuming human lives. This exhibition gives a sort of a transparent insight to the creation of the territories, their attacks and their defense.

    The exhibition is not about concrete "homelands" or self-identification with them, it is dedicated to the mechanisms that create "homelands", the mosaics that they generate and their reciprocal processes.

    Curator Eglė Mikalajūnė

     

    The opening of the exhibition will take place in Nida Art Colony 15th July, 18.oo, it will be running until the 1st of August daily from 12.oo to 18.oo. Works of Markus Coates, Société Realisté, Mark Lewis, Mikko Kuorinki and Robertas Narkus will be exhibited.

    Nida Art Colony Log no.4 is finally out, introduced to its readers with a white front page. The theme of the log is "Taking Time", it sums up the events of summer - autumn 2012. Here one will find texts by Bojana Panevska, Jurij Dobriakov, Toni Ledentsa, as well as texts and portfolios by NAC former residents Luca Diffuse, Henning Lundkvist, Steven Connor, Eva-Fiore Kovačovsky, Franziska Nast, Stephen Berens and Elizabeth Bryant, Jennifer Schmidt. There's twice as much in the Log, be our guest to read it, take it out to the beach or open the pages before you fall to sleep, an inspiration is just around the corner (of a page).

    "Thus, trying to define what artists do in Nida residency while taking "unconditional time", we would be more inclined to say that they engage in artistic research rather than produce artworks."

    - Vytautas Michelkevičius

    "Putting nearly two years of activities together makes quite a bit of experience. After all this, is the Colony not a new institution anymore? Almost not, but give us some more time (let us take time). Slow motion (in silence, but this is too luxurious) has so many advantages."

    - Rasa Antanavičiūtė

    "Sand is not only temporary, it is also the most temporised form of matter. It is the image or allegory of time, shifting, yet unshiftable. It seems a compiling of the minced, mounded years that go into its making, and grains of sand imitate the elementary atoms of time, moment upon patterning moment. Sand is featureless, without joints or divisions, even though it is nothing but division all the way down."

    - Steven Connor

  • The outcome of the International design management seminar, that took place in Nida Art Colony in April 2013 as organized by Vilnius Academy of Arts and Nordic Council of Minister, is now becoming tangible. On the 1st of August, at 18.00hrs., an exhibition presenting the design management scheme and products for the restaurant "Kitchen" will take place in the restaurant itself.

    The project as well as the results were inspired by the numerous legends about the "Neringa" restaurant, a predecessor of "Kitchen": unpublished photos of the building which is an example of the usual soviet modern architecture projects, interview with a waitress of the former restaurant that has served in "Neringa" for many years and thus provided the authors of the project with personal photos etc.

    Project team:

    Dovile Gabalyte, VAA design management MA student;

    Gerda Vilkeviciute, VAA design MA student;

    Anna-Kaisa Varjus, Lapland University design MA student;

    Karolina Jakaite, design historian, VAA lecturer;

    Julija Reklaite, architect, author of the concept of the exposition;

    Tomas Gedminas, director of "Kitchen" restaurant

    Opposite Solutions began the coralisation process planned for the time of their Techno-Ecology thematic residence with the Meteo Day Out, a special event which brought together locals, artists and tourists around the main meteorology sensors park in the center of Nida.

    The MootPost - a wood mobile structure, builded for territory marking and event signalization, also for disrupting a little bit of the impudence of those limousine-boats accosted everywhere there, got lost in the foreground of real sensors and odd-looking detectors of the meteo station. Thanks to Silvestras Dikčius, the one responsible with informal presenting the history of Meteorology Station, the audience used the MootPost for inventing their own sensors in Nida social fields. The unconventional analysis proposed by the romanian artist duo, Claudiu Cobilanschi and Daniela Palimariu, by implanting your own research detector in the center of town, captured the attention of everyone. The output was really surprising, people we're really keen to to measure very specific metadata i.e. the monopole vaporization conditions of the only Maxima superstore present, the levels of shallowness in the very popular Kaštonas Pub and ultimately the atmosphere of security during the eventual night-visit to the local police station being ones of the most interesting "subverted detectors". The next opening of OppositeSolutions will be in the last third of August when they will also present the SensorsForSensors.net booklet.

    On the 3rd of August (Saturday) in Nida Art Colony (Taikos st. 43, Neringa, Lithuania) Young artist exhibition opening took place. 

    The starting point of the exhibition was the floating stories of holiday resort and the concept of transparency. The exhibition raises questions: What kind of stories develop in resort? How are they created and who is responsible for them: vacationers, resort itself or it’s environment? Or maybe resort is just a myth created to comfort our lives?

    Although the house is full of people and things keep on moving, Nida Art Colony is suffering resort moods and slow motion. In a funnily touristic vibe of the Nida resort we are nearly starting to feel tourists ourselves. While sitting behind a glass wall of the office, we take our time to watch the passers-by watching us while they pass it on their way to the exhibition "Stories of Holiday Resort : Transparency", taking place in the hangar.

    Can you feel the spill? is a mental, environmental, and socio-political board game; a micro-social practice and a piece of theory all rolled into one. It is conceived as a turn-based strategy game for two players, which deals with a 'glocal' ecological issue of offshore oil drillings and its environmental impacts.

    This summer, for the second time, Nida Art Colony was hosting a resident grant holder of the Goethe Institut. Last year the collaboration brought to us Franzisca Nast and her great posters that have been exhibited in the facilities of Nida Church and later in Vilnius Academy of Arts. This year it was a Berlin based German artist Wilhelm Klotzek. His artistic practices are concentrating on text: writing it, reading it, performing it, objectifyint it. His interest lie in scratching the surface of the history, retelling stories, searching for the essence, delwing into the oblivion.

    Artist Danius Kesminas is Australian of a Lithuanian origin and yet while on residency in Nida Art Colony, it was only his second time in Lithuania. He says it's impossible to manage something in only one month of a residency and that's exactly what most will agree with - time in Nida has a different pace.

    Once we hear the word „contraband“, we imagine dark coloured images straigt away – drugs, human trafficking, illegal cigarettes. However Vilnius Art Academy invites to look at this phenomenon from a wider point of view. Participants of Migrating Art Academies from different European countries will gather for a creative workshop organised in Nida Art Colony 1-15 September and will try to give this word a different meaning. All lectures during this event will be open to public.
