How To Make Sculptures Move, a collaboration between artist Ruta Butkute and artist/writer Emily Kocken. The project puts language and objects in a dynamic dialogue, creating new functions for audience and performer, in the context of an art exhibition, live performances, moderated talks, and readings.

Arti & Amicitiae presents the first phase of the project via Direct Me to the Centre of Gravity an installation of new performative sculptures by Ruta Butkute, and a sound installation by Emily Kocken, accompanied by a public program.

The exhibition space becomes interactive via a series of choreographed guiding
performances. The audience will be invited to touch sculptural objects.
