Le liūnai

2015 – 2016

The work explores the phenomenon of urban legend. According to etymologists, there is „Le liūnas“ (a quagmire) in Leliūnai town. (In French language, article “le” is attached before masculine nouns.) Town legend says that a drowned woman is still haunting this place. It’s not clear, when this story emerged and spread, but in this work an artist continues the rumors. He also takes the role of a ghost catcher and after installing a video surveillance camera tries to capture the ghost of a lady that haunts Leliūnai district. Live streaming of the chase can be seen in the website
