Gut Feeling

Commissioner: Kęstutis Kuizinas
Curator: Neringa Bumblienė
Exhibitor: Robertas Narkus
Venue: Campo de le Gate, Castello 3200 / 3206


Gut Feeling by Lithuanian artist Robertas Narkus is a complex work that manoeuvres between an honest desire to change the world, a persistent belief in the promise of collaboration, the egocentric ambitions of the artist, and a flirtation with financial structures, technological progress, and humour. The term “gut feeling” describes a certain sense of intuition, a hunch that, according to half-forgotten folklore and the latest scientific discoveries, closely links the activities of the gut with the brain. In collaboration with a renowned fermentation specialist, scientists, fellow artists, local residents, and small businesses, Narkus has created a social sculpture in one of the last remaining nongentrified Venetian campi in the Castello district – a surrealist cooperative producing a mysterious product made from an invasive species of seaweed harvested from local waters.
