The creators of the exhibition Vytenė Muschick, Gintarė Valevičiūtė-Brazauskienė and Jurga Graf invite audiences to view a creative interpretation of the life of physician and writer Dalia Grinkevičiūtė. Through moving images, virtual reality, animation, and the experience of sounds and smells, this interactive multimedia installation will immerse visitors into the unusual spaces and almost insurmountable distances described in Grinkevičiūtė′s memoir, “Lithuanians by the Laptev Sea”, about her Siberian exile. The exhibition is based on the different stages in the author′s life: her childhood in interwar Kaunas, her experience of exile in the Far North, and her mother′s funeral in postwar Kaunas. The story will be presented in an olfactory art group creation, interpreting Grinkevičiūtė′s life journey through scents.
