Grande Saison SanuaK
Exploring different puddle species and their site-specific behavior, Puddle Watching is a guided tour that makes Kaunas’ puddles visible, visitable and experienceable – even in a dry state. Although puddles are an ephemeral phenomenon, they do not occur randomly. The tour looks into their preferences, needs and logic, asking why they appear where they do, thus offering a new view on puddles and the city. A booklet accompanying the walk offers everything to facilitate a journey into the world of Puddle Watching.
The walk in the district of Šančiai, Kaunas was created in collaboration with Indrė Urbelytė (Ekskursas).
Puddle Watching is presented as part of Grande Saison SanuaK, a programme of artistic guided tours in the context of Kaunas European Capital of Culture 2022. Grande Saison SanuaK is a collaboration between Ekskursas (Kaunas) and B_Tour (Berlin), organized and curated by Yael Sherill, Lianne Mol and Algimantas Grigas.
