Julija Pociūtė

Julija Pociūtė is a contemporary Lithuanian artist known for her mixed media installations based on interaction between video art, sculpture, design elements and photography. By combining different materials, she changes the viewer’s perception through experience and encourages them to rethink the principles of reality and illusion. In her artistic practice, the artist pays great attention to the dualistic and temporary nature of man, questioning the influence of memory on the present. The artist is interested in historical memory as a system of capturing reality, in which its opposite becomes an illusion. When combined with each other, different realities create a unique multi-layeredness – the main principle of Pociūtė’s work. Julija Pociūtė study at Vilnius Academy of Arts where she received her MFA in 2007. Since then, she has been actively involved in art practice, constantly participating in group exhibitions and art festivals, has organized many personal exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad (Finland, Denmark, Germany, Portugal, Italy and etc.). Her works belong to the collections of Danish, Spanish, and Lithuanian museums.
