Theme: Memento Mori
Time: 14 June – 8 July 2019
Location: The Plunge Municipal Clock Tower Library, Lithuania
Opening Ceremony: 14 June 2019, at 4 p.m.
We were invited to show part of the “8th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2018” in the Clock Tower Library in Plunge, in the North of Lithuania.
“In 2012 The Plunge Municipal Clock Tower Library began a new life, due to the fact that the library was moved to a reconstructed castle with a clock tower and adjacent greenhouse. The library building is a state protected cultural heritage site complete with restored mid-19th century clock mechanism and a very rare and well preserved example of a 19th century orangery. The clock tower, and now the library are part of the ensemble of Duke Mykolas Oginskis’ estate which is located in the city park. This Ducal ensemble is very important and significant in both a cultural, social and natural sense not only for the city but for the country as a whole”.
