The Modern Art Center invites you to discover 18 talking statues in the heart of Vilnius, animated with the text and voices of some of Lithuania’s most prominent contemporary writers and performers.
Simply walk up to a Talking Statue, swipe your smartphone on the nearby tag and voilà – you have an incoming call! It might be legendary American singer Frank Zappa on the line… or the world-renowned 20th century French writer Romain Gary… or Gediminas, the medieval Grand Duke of Lithuania… calling you to share their intriguing stories!
The statues have already been brought to life in Copenhagen (2013), London and Manchester (2014). In 2015, Vilnius became the fourth city in the chain, soon joined by San Diego and Chicago. It seems the spread is not going to stop! The projects in Copenhagen and San Diego were made by True Stories ApS, while in London, Manchester and Chicago – by Sing London.
