Absolute dating, 2021

Lasers and sound

Commissioned for the Kaunas Biennial, 2021

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 to visit the performative installation on: 11:00, 14:00, 17:00

On the opening weekend: 12 November 14:30, 17:00; 13-14 November: 11:00, 12:00, 14:00, 16:00, 17:00
