Kristina Inčiūraitė

Under the Same Sky is a new immersive audio-visual installation by Lithuanian artist Kristina Inčiūraitė, in collaboration with Dr. Eva McMullan-Glossop and University College Cork Choir, as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.

Kristina Inčiūraitė's Under the Same Sky showcases the unique Irish landscape of the Burren National Park with a vocal soundscape of wild nature based on observations and imagination.

This mysterious sound and visual experience encourages us to explore questions around climate change: can biodiversity be sustained in our individual and collective memory? Are we able to be less anthropocentric when faced with globalisation and rapid climate change? Can we imagine communities that are not shaped by human superiority? 

Kristina Inčiūraitė is a Lithuanian contemporary artist, whose practice often involves installation, experimental film, and musical performance. She has produced numerous projects in collaboration with international singers, collectively addressing the constant change of our urban and natural world, and the ways in which these developments alter and affect our own identities. Her work has been previously exhibited at art institutions, including National Gallery of Art, Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome, National Art Museum of China in Beijing, National Art Museum of Ukraine in Kyiv, Oi Futuro Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro, Kalmar Museum of Art in Kalmar, KUMU Art Museum, and ar/ge kunst Gallery Museum in Bolzano.
