Viktorija Makauskaite

About   (EN)  /  (JP)

Viktorija Makauskaite is Lithuanian architect and artist based in Japan. She uses photography, drawing, craft, and text as her artistic medium, often exploring their interconnection.

A part of her work stems from architectural upbringing through observation and engagement with sound and space.
She is also interested in her position of an immigrant, a woman, an amateur, etc.  Viktorija sees art as an opportunity to redefine one's ground and establish new links with adopted and abandoned places, languages, communities, and self.
