In early May, 7 artists have come together to develop their ideas for the forthcoming annual symposium at Nida Art Colony. The artists will reflect on the line as a very basic visual element and medium of knowledge.

Among the residents are Jessica Warboys and Morten Norbye Halvorsen, British and Norwegian artists working with painting, film and sound, Austrian artist Ines Hochgerner, who works with drawing and installations, German artist Raul Walch, who works with kites, sails and walks,  British and German artist Ruth Proctor, who works with film and performance, Lithuanian artist, musician and performer Lina Lapelytė, and Lithuanian artist Vitalij Červiakov, whose main artistic practice is walking. Some of them have already been working in Nida from early and mid-April.

Belgian artist from Flanders Christoph Fink also stayed for a week-long research residency in the end of April, and did walks and extensive field recordings to prepare for his performance at the symposium.

On May 19th-22nd these artists will be joined by 30 other artists, philosophers and researchers who will spend three days and nights engaging in a dialogue between artistic, philosophical and scientific research with presentations, artist-guided walks, concerts, and performances in the woods, among the shifting dunes, inside various spaces of the Colony, and on the coast lines (on the seaside and by the lagoon).

Using the line as a symbolic/metaphorical as well as analytical instrument, the symposium will present different strategies to sketch and connect the world through methods of mapping, walking, drawing, recording, performing, swimming, writing, reading or singing.

The Inter-format symposium is curated by Thomas Thiel (DE) & Vytautas Michelkevičius, and organized by the Nida Art Colony team.
