Emilija Škarnulytė: Absolute dating

19 February @ 11:00 - 20 February @ 17:07

Absolute dating, 2021

Lasers and sound

Commissioned for the Kaunas Biennial, 2021

Duration: 7′

Emilija Škarnulytė’s immersive installation is inspired by the Kaunas Tadas Ivanauskas Zoological Museum’s displays. For her performative, cinematic piece she brings together the poetic and scientific to create a sensory experience that investigates the philosophical concept of Deep Time and events on a geological scale. This story of survival through time, unfolds with the choreography of artificial lights and sounds. Škarnulytė’s work evokes time travel and can be understood as a form of archeology of the future. Here, she investigates the unknown, including pre- and post-human evolution and adaptation, the current intersecting structures of power and the devastating effects of climate change.


We recommend visiting the performative installation on: 11.00, 12.00, 14.00, 16.00, 17.00 in the Mammals Hall, on the first floor of the Zoology museum.
