While Art Pit is suc­cess­fully expand­ing in London and pre­par­ing for some inter­na­tional pro­jects, its’ team also keeps on organ­iz­ing vari­ous con­tem­por­ary art events in Eastern Europe. On com­ing fri­day we will start new series of events in Contemporary Art Center (CAC) in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Level B is series of sum­mer events ded­ic­ated to the concept of base­ment, b-​movie and under­ground art. We will focus on audio-​visual psy­che­delia, per­form­ance art and other curi­os­it­ies and exper­i­ments. Three events will take place on 22nd of June, 5th of July and 14th of August. More inform­a­tion about the pro­gramme and pos­sib­il­it­ies to take part fur­ther in this post.

PROGRAMME

Rose Staff (Australia) – audi­ovisual performance

An Australian artist, known as VJ Radiance, is now resid­ing in Polymer Culture Factory in Tallinn; she will present a performance/​video install­a­tion Memento Mori which will ana­lyse the pos­sib­il­it­ies of defin­ing sur­faces of archi­tec­tural objects via video; these sur­faces will be incor­por­ated in the work as medi­ums to pro­ject the video on.

The work uses video sequences made of pho­tomont­age – collage-​like stop motion anim­a­tions. Memento Mori is an attempt to mix and estab­lish new con­texts for reli­gious and cul­tural icon­o­graphy depict­ing death.

Harry Hummer (the Netherlands/​Estonia)

Harry Hummer (also known as Harry Hamster), one of the pro­jects of Renzo van Steenbergen from the Netherlands, star­ted out as a coin­cid­ence. Since 2001, this artist has been a mem­ber of Feedbacksociety, the founder and pro­gram­mer of Seveninchrecordings and Seveninchprojects, a mem­ber of such musical phe­nom­ena like Noizbleed, Johnny Locash and Sonozon. At the moment, he is based in Estonia and work­ing as a com­poser for one of the theatres in Tallinn.

Arma and 4 girls „Nelaboji mad­muazel“ (Jonava, Lithuania) – absurd operetta

Boredom, stag­na­tion, fits of point­less anger, the fight with the invis­ible, the white insan­ity, per­ver­ted view, ripped up sound, scattered spaces, troubled consciousness.

These and other keywords speak of noth­ing, of non­sense that is not worth for your atten­tion, that is left behind atten­tion, and yet that per­sist­ently wants to exist.

Arma is cur­ator of con­tem­por­ary art events, zine pub­lisher since 1998, pro­tector of avant-​garde music, estab­lisher of Agharta and Perineum (rip) peri­od­ic­als, pro­ject man­ager of Homo Ludens club in Jonava and a lover of out­sider art.

Pichismo (Kaunas, Lithuania) – per­form­ance in a fic­tional language

PICHISMO is one of the old­est under­ground pro­jects in Lithuania, fam­ous for intro­du­cing fic­tional lan­guages (con­langs) to the world’s extreme music stage. The pro­ject was born in 1993 in a small town of Ciurupinsk in the south of Ukraine. The first stu­dio album was recor­ded in October 1993 and gave birth to a new musical style – esper­ant­o­core. Tens of fam­ous musi­cians from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Latvia and Lithuania have since played in the loge, using vari­ous fic­tional lan­guages, among which was volapuk, klin­gon, toki pona, etc. PICHISMO’s dis­co­graphy amounts to 50 releases from punk to harsh noise. Today it’s a pro­ject of a single man, the irre­place­able leader Gleb Maltsev.

Shaltmira (Vilnius, Lithuania) – performance

Shaltmira is an under­ground graphic artist, a pro­moter of body art, a comic artist, a pub­lisher of “Excessive Voyeurism” and “Red, Sore & Itchy” zines. It has not been long since she has star­ted doing per­form­ances yet they have already been presen­ted not only in Lithuania, but also in the Netherlands. Shaltmira will per­form her latest work „THE LAST WORD OF A MAN“.

Ingra Miler (Vilnius) – audi­ovisual performance

Ingra Miler is an artist of the young gen­er­a­tion. She cre­ates audi­ovisual per­form­ances and install­a­tions, organ­ises social actions and mod­els ceramic objects. In Level B, she will present her audi­ovisual per­form­ance pro­ject PER↵.FORM.

PER↵.FORM speaks about images, forms and mak­ing of fet­ish­ism. “We are going via form. We are chan­ging the atmo­sphere.” Music com­pos­i­tions cre­ated espe­cially for the event and live video broad­casts will chill those present with their dose of sar­casm and irony.

DJ Outsider (breakcore)

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my chil­dren. I found a ssea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daugh­ter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear aand screamed.
    There was a her­mit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wan­mts to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had tto tell someone!
