Moving Line

2015 – 2019

The work Moving Line was exhibited at the entrance of the Utena Regional Museum. This is a screen with a moving line. This type of screens is often used in advertising. The lines that are being displayed are writings, which were found on walls, benches, various ads, graffiti and etc. during the walk around Utena. Appearance of such texts in Ethnographic Museum indicates desire to archive, an attempt to make them into exhibits and prominence. Ethnographic Museum is a place where information about region’s past and present is collected and archived, so future generations could comprehend how their ancestors lived. In a sense, street „poetry” also presents contemporary human issues and the atmosphere of the city.
