On June 28 – July 17, 2022, a group exhibition titled Sensitivity Analysis will be on display at Vilnius Graphic Art Centre’s Kairė-dešinė gallery. The exhibition features works by Kamilė Jadevičiūtė, Justė Kuliešaitė, Kristina Striogaitė, Marija Sučilaitė, and Ieva Trinkūnaitė.
The opening will be held on June 28, from 6–8 pm.

Five artists populate the city’s heat island – central Vilnius, where summertime temperature is somewhat higher that in the suburbs due to the prevalence of paved areas and lack of green areas, – with animate and inanimate natural objects. These include a pollution-affected juniper grove, unknown biological beings that lurked under glaciers, exotic animals seen in zoos, limestone formed from marine organisms, geological objects reminiscent of the extraction of natural resources, and the human being, suffering from the transience of existence and helplessness. Figuring out and experiencing the objects displayed in the exhibition will require special tools. Philosopher Martha Nussbaum, for instance, singles out empathy and compassion as the principal emotions that lead to connection with the environment and care for others. Meanwhile, writer Georgi Gospodinov reflects on radical empathy that would make it possible to inhabit the existence of not only another human being, but also an animal, plant, or even limestone. However, imagining the perspective of otherness can become awkward, uncomfortable, or even painful.

In climatology, sensitivity analysis is employed to evaluate the vulnerability of economic, social, and natural sectors to climate change. In this exhibition, it is a way of encountering the posthuman ambivalence of empathy and compassion.
