The 8th International Biennial of Textil Miniatures "Thoughts - that is..."

Art Gallery ARKA, Ausros Vartu str 7, LT-01304 Vilnius, Lithuania

Tel: (+370 5) 2121319


This exhibition aims to tackle the urgent problem of human existence. Who and what are we? What settles our environment? The concept is based on the metaphysical statement, that material and spiritual worlds are interrelated, that thoughts can materialise. The invisible processes which are taking place in our mind create reality - real things, phenomena, emotions. Every object from our reality is the embodiment of the ideas, which have ever existed. Everything that surrounds us is the result of the human mind. Human thoughts form not only objects, but also one's activity, creativity and personality.


Tuesday 9th July - Saturday 27th July 2013

Tuesday - Friday 12noon-7pm

Saturday 12noon-4pm
