Šiluva Art Biennial'21 Open Call for Artists

In the context of Šiluva, the term “Touched Land” can be understood on several levels: Šiluva is an area of exceptional sacral value, touched by the feet of the Mother of God, tired pilgrims and the Pope. This place is daily passed by local people and preachers. The touched land can be either the heart or he soul of a person who has experienced the power of touch in solitude or togetherness. As well, the touched land can be creation by human, which could bring at least one step closer to the divine reality. The touched land may be the one who may not yet know that it longs for touch…
