Anton Lukoszevieze - Kauno Bienalė

Anton Lukoszevieze


This installation is a homage to the Kaunas-born Lithuanian-American artist and the co-founder of the Fluxus movement, George Maciunas (1931-1978). His Music for Everyman (1961) consists of a musical score as a catalogue of possible sounds and actions.

A number of seats in the Kaunas Social Insurance Office waiting area have been installed with pressure sensitive pads. When a visitor sits on the seat, a pre-recorded sound is activated. Thus Lukoszevieze causes the general public to unintentionally perform Music For Everyman.

The location of the Social Insurance Office for this “monument” is not accidental: everyone comes here, and it is due to the perpetual stream of visitors that this monument to Maciunas exists – always, but only when there is someone there to create and perceive it at the same time.
