The catalogue of the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale.

Sun & Sea (Marina), a vinyl/publication designed by Åbäke, is produced on the occasion of the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. Responding to the performance that gives the album its name, texts in this publication focus on the shoreline as a space of projection, imagination and ecological anxiety.

Imagine a beach – you within it, or better: watching from above – the burning sun, sunscreen and bright bathing suits and sweaty palms and legs. Tired limbs sprawled lazily across a mosaic of towels. Imagine the occasional squeal of children, laughter, the sound of an ice cream van in the distance. The musical rhythm of waves on the surf, a soothing sound (on this particular beach, not elsewhere). The crinkling of plastic bags whirling in the air, their silent floating, jellyfish-like, below the waterline. The rumble of a volcano, or of an airplane, or a speedboat. Then a chorus of songs: everyday songs, songs of worry and of boredom, songs of almost nothing. And below them: the slow creaking of an exhausted Earth, a gasp.
