The Hunt of The Unicorn

This a clip of a work that was screened at the Eighth International Textile Biennial in Kaunas, Lithuania last winter. The work is by Birutė Letukaitė, Vita Gelūnienė & Evaldas Jansas with the “Aura” dance group from Lithuania.

Early in 2011 textile artist Vita Geluniene and choreographer Birute Letukaite decided to collaborate. Choreographer Birute Letukaite visited the studio where Vita Geluniene weaves, they discussed Vita’s visions and the possibilities of fulfilling them.

Vita Geluniene explains “For some time I had this idea that my weaving should not only tell a story in two dimensional space, bus as well reveal time dimension. Time during which the story is told, is no less important than the story itself, it becomes a connecting link between the stories, the narrator and the events of that time. In my visions I saw characters who move in the background of the fabric embodying the story of “The Hunt of the Unicorn”.
