The group exhibition An Unfinished Project seeks to whirl our conventional divisions of time, articulating the role of the past as that which does not pass – as an ongoing event crossing through the present towards the future. The problematized time tenses of the exhibition are manifested in different ways. Some of the works convey a sense of anticipation and are experienced as a sign of future occurrence; some create a certain image of the past which they reenact, bringing back to life; others imply movement, addressing and practicing a cyclical approach to time, or appear in the ‘here and now’ as an act of commemoration and revivification of traumatic moments in history.

An Unfinished Projects brings together artists of various contexts and nationalities – Lithuanian, German, Belgian, and Israeli – to participate in an orchestrated scenario reflecting on historical and material reality, while amounting to an alternative universe.
