"Skateboard Prayer, or Head Below the Heart" by Eglė Budvytytė

On 28 April at 6pm at the Contemporary Art Centre the exhibition "Skateboard Prayer, or Head Below the Heart" by Eglė Budvytytė will open. "Skateboard Prayer, or Head Below the Heart" is an exhibition organised around a daily ritual, featuring seven performers who slowly trace a route through the spaces of the CAC. Their practice – a choreography of gestures reminiscent of various spiritual traditions – carries them to and through various states of inwardness, intimacy, playfulness and humbleness. Through gestures of care they embrace their interdependency, remaining mostly indifferent to the presence of audience. The ritual starts daily at 6pm and lasts an hour. During the opening night the audience is invited to attend a ‘suspended’ version of the piece.
