Exhibition on Stage. God from the Machine
God from the Machine (composed in 2013) is a piece of exhibition fiction. In a group show filmed on a theatre stage, artworks appear as main protagonists of the story. The story itself is happening on a ship and is developed using the narrative tool called deus ex machina or ‘god from the machine’ – derived from ancient Greek theatre where a stage machinery would bring the god character to solve the problem in the story. Here, in this group exhibition of objects, sculptures, actions and transitions, the plot device - god from the machine - inhabits each of the appearances on stage.
Filmed in 2013 in Vilnius, this travelling exhibition is sealed in twenty minutes long video.
