Citynature: Vilnius and Beyond

2016 – 2017

The city is often seen as the antithesis of nature: we go “searching” fornature in the countryside, woods or mountains. Citynature: Vilniusand Beyond offers a radically different approach. It perceives the cityas an ecosystem, in which Homo sapiens, despite being the dominantelement, is not the author. According to the creators of the exhibition,while dwelling in the city, we still live in nature, and we have to dealwith its laws in the most unexpected ways.
This exhibition combines art and science: it presents five new contem-porary works of art, created by artists in collaboration with scientists;and six scientific studies, accompanied by creative visualpresentations, which were developed by scientists in collaborationwith the exhibition curators
