EVALDAS JANSAS: LINKEJIMAI

PRESS RELEASE

One of the earliest Lithuanian video works was Evaldas Jansas’ “Linkejimai/Wishes,” which was filmed on the days leading up to New Year’s Eve. In “Linkejimai” Jansas asks passersby in various locales (on the street, in bars, and at the contemporary art centre) what they wish for themselves and for others, on the occasion of New Year’s Eve.  Jansas provokes strangers to articulate their values, fantasies, anxieties and epistemologies.
