I am an interdisciplinary artist working in between the fields of visual art and dance. After graduating from BA in Fine arts from Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in 2018 I moved back to my hometown Kaunas where I am currently based and studying Social Anthropology in VMU.
In my practise I am questioning what does it mean to have a body in the twenty-first century, how the relations to our bodies change due to various environmental and societal factors, and how do we care for and make use of the physical possibilities of our existence.
The format of my works usually is (participatory) performances and / or installations, video works with performative elements, short films or instructions for the audience on how to execute the work.
An important aspect to my practise is constantly learning and developing my skills and knowledge, therefore, I both participate in and teach workshops, dance classes as well as I am part of various collaborative projects.
‘Until It Wears Off’
video text transcript
The smell of old urine and medication
Makes me feel like
I’m still alive and breathing.
Makes me feel my fleshiness and being in my own skin,
Moving in this heavy body wearing off every skin particle until it renews itself,
Realizing that one day it will not renew itself so fast anymore.
‘love, love love is lifting me higher
love, love love is lifting me higher
love, love love is lifting me higher’
The first day we came they told us we should keep in mind that someone might die during the month that we stay there.
I didn’t believe it from the beginning. It didn’t happen until the end.
It’s simply that the process of aging or deterioration provides the necessary detachment or arouses a necessary sympathy.
Or any body
Is in a constant flux
Or any body
Exist only in a dialogue
Or any body
Is decaying every day
Post-its on the floor
Without an order
Like our thoughts
Everything is so illusionary
Where do we begin
‘everyone grows older,
everything must change,
everybody knows we’re gonna die’
Every mosquito bite makes me feel an itch.
Birds, outside the window, are being louder than the cars or the movie that I’m watching.
It all places me in a context, in which nature has a higher position in this hierarchy than I do.
I’m just part of things.
We change ourselves
By the things that we do
The supermarkets we get our food from
Where we sleep
Where and how we go to work
It all changes us
It changes our bodies and our memories
In this age there is nothing more important than to take care of yourself and each other. Listening to each other and helping each other out.
This city takes care of me like no one else
Nature takes care of me like no one else
Water takes care of me like no one else
My body takes care of me like no one else
That cup of coffee took care of me like no one else
There are some things that cannot be expressed in words.
Therefore, I stay silent.
Production of too many useful things
production of too many useless people.
The same goes for words.
‘there are buildings, there are people,
Walk around and look up to’
