As one of the main goals of the ArcInTexETN program is to build foundations for new forms of space, I’ve been recently questioning the representations of interior space in art, architecture and design. I encouraged some of the students at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (3rd year B.A. Textile) to undertake their assignment for a tapestry conception for public interior by considering aural specificities of a space as a guiding matter for design and to ‘misbehave’ with a common CAD software:

Two recent exhibitions, one in Vilnius (Lithuania) and another one in Orléans (France) showed works that unsettle our understanding of what constitutes an interior:

The exhibition called Paraphrases at the Vartai gallery in Vilnius showed Patricija Jurkšaitytė’s work ‘Leonardo da Vinci. Last supper’ (oil painting on canvas, 2014).

 Allures (Aspects) at the Turbulences. Frac Centre (Orléans) exhibited one of their radical architectures’ collection work: a serie of drawings by Archizoom Associati, Andrea Branzi named ‘Strutture in liquefazione’ (1968):

Displayed works are ‘questioning our methods of organising and defining knowledge, (re)cognition, and perception of what is tangible. Still, these heterogeneous worlds draw the outline of a manifest consistency of artistic production, whether it belongs to the field of art or of architecture.’
