Eglé Budvytytè (LT)

Born in 1982 in Lithuania. Lives and works in Vilnius and Amsterdam.
A graduate in photography from the Vilnius Art Academy and in audio-visual studies from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Eglė Budvytytė obtained a master’s degree at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam in 2008. Her work has been presented at several art centers in Europe and elsewhere in the world, in particular the Museu de Arte Moderna in São Paulo, the CAC in Vilnius, the Swiss Institute in New York and the TENT in Rotterdam.
Her practice is defined through a variety of mediums, video, radio broadcast, or performance, and also explores a certain relationship to the environment. Eglė Budvytytė questions the sensitivity and consciousness of what surrounds us through semi-constructed, semi-improvised situations, between fiction and reality, staged scenario and documentary. The artist dissolves the boundaries between the imaginary and the real in order to analyze the social construction of identity and its relationship to the real.

limites de l’imaginaire et du réel, pour analyser la construction sociale de l’identité et le rapport au réel.
