For two weeks Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists Union’s project space Malonioji 6 physically and virtually will be occupied by photographers creating not only photography. The Artists are interested in every day’s occurrences and rituals which become less routinely while thinking about them, also structures and models by which one understands and creates the world. In what way the changes happen and how does their in-between stages look like? Where is the boundary between important events and trifles? What is the importance of a studio in a physical space for a contemporary artist and how it can become a space of thought? These questions and problems unite the curiosity of the artists and stimulates their creativity. During the Open Studios artists will create objects, texts, actions and play with scales, cultural artifacts and language.

Marija Jociūtė (born in 1988) gained BA and MA degrees of Audio-Visual Arts in Vilnius Academy of Arts. Currently lives and works in Vienna. Works explore different structures of thinking in the everyday life, the ways they appear and the effects of their existence.

Dalia Mikonytė (born in 1986) is an artist and researcher, member of artists group Coolturistes and The Lithuanian Interdisciplinary Artists’ Association. Her work focuses on intimate space and time, personal experiences, female identity and its representation, signs and reality, feminism. Dalia`s interests and inspirations balance between history and contemporary art, among theory and sentiment.

Lina Zaveckytė (born in 1988) has a BA and MA in Photography and Media Art from Vilnius Academy of Arts. She is interested in the concept of change, both physical and mental, and in how that can be experienced as a state of in-betweenness.

Open Studios – Open Process is a project aiming to encourage the cooperation between artists, engaging in conversations through artistic practices while also opening the doors of artistic studios for the audience involvement into creative process and the dialogue. For acknowledged artists this project is an opportunity to implement their ideas beyond their traditional studio space, while for the young artists this is an opportunity to show their work to public.

This project is partially supported by Lithuanian Council For Culture and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.
