Art in Unusual Places
Date: 19-21 September 2008
Venue: Vilnius City
Implemented by Public Institution Vilnius - European Capital of Culture 2009
This is the project transforming Vilnius face, the creative intervention of artists and original far-outers into the unexpected city areas in real time!
The projects of professional artists such as video and audio installations, operettas, performances, dances, social campaigns, artistic vagaries and surprises will astonish the audiences in a variety of extraordinary city places, like the market, bridges, dead fountains, inner yards of the Old Town or unfinished ghost buildings. Special maps will help people to detect the “hidden” attractions. City residents are also invited to create projects in their yards and houses. The most inventive projects will be awarded with special prizes.
Forty-three projects of unexpected art were implemented in the city in 2007, during which period all could become artists or participants in an urban detective novel hunting for art in unusual sites of the city.

How to make art from life (with the help of a few ghosts)
18.00 Wednesday 11 June
Scanner will present a history of work that has slipped between the borders of performance, installation, music and art, from scanning mobile phone networks, composing a new National Anthem for Europe and collaborating with fashion designers, choreographers, hospitals and the homeless. And how to do all this without drinking tea, coffee, alcohol, meat or smoking.
“He is very experimental because he is searching in a realm of sound which is not usually used for music...he has a good sense of atmosphere.”
Karlheinz Stockhausen - BBC
