An industrial seascape is filled with human presence. A seductive whisper recounts the job of an artist. This intimate soliloquy superposed with the distant images unfolds matters of youth, longing, love, and the organization of time and daily life in correlation to work.
Paulius Šliaupa‘s (1990, Vilnius, Lithuania) works explore the relationship(s) between culture and nature, the interaction of ambience and light that affect our daily lives. By accumulating the flow of painterly images, atmospheric sounds and poetic energy, the artist creates sensual narratives. Most projects consist of multiple works, grouped around specific themes such as organic structures, rituals in nature, the flow of natural and artificial light and absurd poetic happenings. Šliaupa holds a BA and a MFA from the Vilnius Academy of Arts as well as a MFA in media arts from KASK, Ghent. Selected exhibitions include the solo exhibition “Dès Vu“, Meno Nisa, Vilnius (2019) and the group exhibition “The upper hand“, IKOB, Eupen, Belgium (2020). Šliaupa is part of the HISK post-graduate programme 2020 & 2021.
