Coordinator for the Exhibition in Venice: Deirdre Kelly

After four days of exhibition at the Leipzig Book Fair, after packing all the books, I move towards Italy later in the evening. On the way it was stormy and raining, extremely bad weather. But we had to drive 300 km to the hotel on the highway near Nuremberg. I arrived at the hotel very late at night.

The next day I had to cross Austria. It must have been a nice road because I was driving on small roads, no highways. And it was. Snowy road in the Alps, serpentine road to Passo Giovo (altitude: 2,094 m). Just a few cars and lots of snow. After a little descent from the pass, I stayed in a small nice private hotel in the mountains at 1400 m, already in Italy.

I arrived in Venice from the mountains the next day through small roads. Italy welcomed the rain. I traveled 2712 km from Lithuania.

In Venice, together with the gallery director Deirdre Kelly, we installed the “10th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2024” at the SG Gallery. A great little exhibition in a wonderful space, in Venezia!!! The next day, the opening of the Triennial in Venice.

This is the last “Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius” in Venice. So that jealous Lithuanians don’t get upset, I won’t do the Triennial anymore.
