Roma Auskalnyte “Frustration”

7.3. – 31.3

Roma has worked for several years in a direction that may be referred to as ‘auto-biography’. Her works were usually derived from memory as well as from some mementos that she had in her possession since childhood.

From 2012 she started concentrating more on text based art in combination with printmaking or video, as well as various body/performance experiments. She is influenced by the printmaking processes, how it leads to new, ambiguous transformations of old ideas. Roma is exploring body as material in printmaking, the importance of gesture and repetition which are always hidden behind the final print.
