Dovilė Aleksandravičiūtė (Vilnius, LT) is an artist and a writer working within the lines of visual art, literature and academic research. Even though text plays great importance in her practice she works in a variety of mediums: spatial installations, audio recordings, as well as sculptural and 2D work. Aleksandravičiūtės work focuses on identities and entities that emerge in the spaces in between. Between physical body and thought, East and West, visible and invisible between belonging and being an outsider. This in-betweenness is treated not just as an abstract passing state or space but as a state or space which perpetually flips between permanent and transient.
