In her practice, Marija Olšauskaitė employs various modes of collaboration and explores the themes of relationships, openness, intimacy and belonging. To participate in a show Witness on our behalf she has invited friends, artists and other creators, in an attempt to create a space in which intimacy, affinity and privacy are exposed, and passers-by become guests. Curated and staged occurrences and events are experienced alongside continuous and out-of-control situations. Small talk, gossip, and bragging take place in full vulnerability and sharing, or the state of honesty and truth, becomes a given responsibility. As the participants exchange their ideas, authorship is no longer important. In the words of the artist, “Like a kiss between five people, you don’t feel whose lips are whose, but it’s definitely a kiss”. Participants in the show: Ms. Carrie Stacks, James Massiah, Eglė Budvytytė, Tomislav Feller, Carolyn Lazard, Elena Narbutaitė, Steve & Samantha, Dodomundo, Antanas Lučiūnas, Maria Tsoy, Ieva Kabašinskaitė, Raimundas Malašauskas, Jonas Žakaitis and others.
