Krautarkia

‘Where do we come from, what are we, and where are we going’—inscribed Paul Gauguin on the back of his painting in 1897, in Haiti. No question mark, no dash, all words capitalized. 

The prehistoric, the sensual new season.

The Metaphysics of Beer

A Symposium of Humans and Micro-organisms
Vytenis Burokas

A humorous demonstration of Vytenis Burokas’ research and methodology that pulls ideas around philosophy, science, fermentation, rituals, inebriation, and food into a vortex. Rather than merely cite and quote his research, the artist stages an increasingly drunken discussion between himself and a crowd of philosophers, scientists, and theoreticians. In the play, Burokas ventriloquizes, and is inhabited by, a strange constellation of characters who have all dealt with the properties of the clinamen in some way, including the philosophers Aristotle, Epicurus, Lucretius, Julia Annas, and Michel Serres, the scientists Henri Poincaré and Ilya Prigogine, and the composers and theorists John Rahn and Michel Dellvile, amongst many other voices. (Post Brothers)

Vytenis Burokas (b. 1990, Vilnius, Lithuania) is an artist and curator, interested in visible and invisible manifestations of history and memory fragments, documenting time passing and responding with choreography, movements, narrative to highlight traces, slips of a tongue and language. His focuse lies in rituals and happenings in social environments, architecture. Vytenis Burokas has graduated Contemporary Sculpture BA, MA at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (2009-2015) and completed the Rupert Educational Program in Vilnius (2013-2014). Burokas has exhibited in Contemporary Art Center (Vilnius, LT), Šiauliai Art Gallery (Šiauliai, LT), Komplot (Brussels, BE), Nida Art Colony (Nida, LT), Granada Film Festival (Granada, Spain), stage performance at Muiderpoorttheater (Amsterdam, NL), performances at Rupert (Vilnius, LT)

This time the rabbit looks down: Chocolate scrying

AnaSusana (Milena Bonilla and Luisa Ungar)

After drinking, while moving the cup counter-clockwise, you form seven circles around a question. The liquid is shaping itself: after leaving the cup upside down, chocolate leftovers start to occupy their place, spirals of meaning show up and hide; their inapprehensible character plays around fears, affections and expectations, or with the idea that there is a future and there was a past. 

Hot chocolate will leave the necessary stains for images to turn into visions and conversation. If the Cacao allows it.
