The International Biennial of Textile Miniatures, which started in 1992 and is held every two years at the Arka Gallery and reflects contemporary textile art, is being organized for the 12th time this year. The latest collection of the biennial, consisting of works by artists from 24 different countries, is dedicated to the narrative of a visiting card as a small-format recognizable sign, presenting an author’s unique style, mastered technique, or researched themes that shape the artist’s identity.

In this exhibition, the participants look at the visiting card in various ways – historical, ideological, social, artistic – and examine not only the themes of personal experiences but also the themes of memory.

The size standard set in the early 20th century was the format of one cigarette’s length and seven cigarettes’ width, as the cards were stored in tobacco packaging.

Modern technology has made a visiting card an attribute of everyday life, and a variety of technologies are used to produce it. Modern technology has pushed the visiting card as a physical object into the margins of social communication. It is very often replaced by digital formats for the exchange of contact information. These are “becoming friends on Facebook or LinkedIn, following each other on Instagram, and so on. Nevertheless, the metaphorical meaning of the visiting card has remained. The latter is reflected in the collection of this year’s biennial, formed from the works proposed during the open call, of which more than seventy were selected for the exhibition by the jury.

XII Biennale Internazionale di Miniature Tessili “Biglietto da visita”

Curatore: Žydre Ridulytė
Galleria “Arka” – Vilnius – Lituania
Dal 28 ottobre al 26 novembre
Con il sostegno dell’Associazione degli Artisti Lituani

La Biennale Internazionale di Miniature Tessili, iniziata nel 1992, continua ogni due anni presso la Galleria Arka riflettendo gli sviluppi dell’arte tessile contemporanea. Quest’anno viene organizzata per la dodicesima volta.

La collezione della biennale è composta da opere provenienti da 24 paesi diversi ed è dedicata al racconto racchiuso in un biglietto da visita, un segno riconoscibile in piccolo formato che presenta lo stile unico di un autore, la sua tecnica d’elezione o i temi fondanti dell’identità dell’artista.

In questa mostra, i partecipanti interpretano il biglietto da visita in modi diversi – storico, ideologico, sociale, artistico – esaminando temi legati ad esperienze personali ma anche alla memoria.

Le dimensioni standard del biglietto, stabilite all’inizio del XX secolo, erano quelle di una sigaretta di lunghezza e sette di larghezza, dato che doveva essere conservato nella confezione di tabacco.

La tecnologia moderna, coi suoi mezzi diversificati, ha reso il biglietto da visita un attributo della vita quotidiana spingendolo come oggetto fisico ai margini della comunicazione sociale. È, al giorno d’oggi, molto spesso sostituito da formati digitali usati nello scambio delle informazioni di contatto. Si tratta di “diventare amici su Facebook o Linkedin, seguirsi a vicenda su Instagram, e così via”. Tuttavia, il significato metaforico del biglietto da visita è rimasto e questo si riflette nella scelta delle opere in mostra nella biennale. Pervenute grazie ad un’open call, più di settanta sono state selezionate dalla giuria.
