secrets is a publication that gathers words, and glass summoned by Elena Narbutaitė and Marija Olšauskaitė. It is produced in conjunction with sekretas (Lithuanian for secret), the exhibition by Marija Olšauskaitė at the Grazer Kunstverein, which departs from a recreational activity performed by youngsters in the former Soviet Union. Stealthily, children would enter a courtyard, woods, or plains and place small objects under a piece of glass: flower petals, pictures, a note, golden bottle caps, shells, and other idiosyncratic elements would be organised and composed into a material expression of friend-ship. The pane would then be covered with earth or dust, as a sekretas withdraws from the eye.

With contributions by Elena Narbutaitė, Marija Olšauskaitė, Maria Tsoy, Aleksandra Krivulina, and Tom Engels, designed by Julie Peeters.

Guest (translations)
Valzhyna Mort
Published by Fivehundred places, Berlin, 2020, unpaginated, 15.1 × 11.2 cm, English, Russian
Price: €10 (Out of stock)

With translations by Galina Rymbu, Georgia Sagri, Elena Narbutaitė, Freya Choi, Jakob Kolding.

Valzhyna Mort’s Guest in translation initiates a new series co-produced by Fivehundred Places and V–A–C Press, Moscow, and is designed to explore some of the outer reaches of translation. Each book in the series is dedicated to multiple translations of a single poem. Inspired by a comment from Ilya Kaminsky about how translation should open windows and not create mirrors, artists, dancers, musicians, philosophers, curators, writers and visual thinkers were invited to imagine translations from their unique perspective, using a poem as a starting point, to make a version of that poem.

Elena Narbutaitė enjoys the nature of discovery. By offering the unexpected, she hopes to create social situations in which the audience can collectively experience surprise or confusion. ‘Alex’ is a lamp, a light programme, and an exhibition by Narbutaitė that began during a 2016 New Year’s Eve party in her Vilnius apartment. After bringing in the new year, the lamp travelled to Kunstverein München, where it was installed above a window at the foyer entrance, pointed directly into the eyes of visitors. This book marks the year-long event using text excerpted from the film ‘Exotica’ by Atom Egoyan, as well as text interventions by Bernardo José de Souza and Chris Fitzpatrick.

Designed by Julie Peeters.
