Introducing Emilija Škarnulytė (*1987 Vilnius, Lithuania)

Emilija Škarnulytė is a visual artist and filmmaker, whose works explore the psychological power that our environment holds over us. Intertwining fiction and documentary, she researches places where usually counter-acting elements of the physical world and our social imaginary, such as technological systems and human nostalgia, meet. Her videos and multimedia installation become platforms that open up multi-dimensional experiences that address the notion of geologic time and its influence on our relation with history.

In the recent years, her works were exhibited in Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin, Germany), Serpentine Galleries (London, UK), at the Toronto Biennial of Art, the Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art (RIBOCA) and in 2019 she received the Future Generation Art Prize during Venice Biennial, The prize is given by the PinchukArtCentre in Kiev, Ukraine, where she will have a solo show this year.
