11.05 > 31.10 // 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, May you live in interesting times

Precarious Architecture collaborates to the Lithuanian Pavilion project at 58th Venice International Art Exhibition. The artwork is awarded with the

Golden Lion for Best National Participation to Lithuania for the experimental spirit of the Pavilion and its unexpected treatment of national representation. The jury was impressed with the inventive use of the venue to present a Brechtian opera as well as the Pavilion’s engagement with the city of Venice and its inhabitants. Sun & Sea (Marina) is a critique of leisure and of our times as sung by a cast of performers and volunteers portraying everyday people.
