Viktorija Makauskaite


About   (EN)  /  (JP)


Viktorija Makauskaite (born in Lithuania) lives and works in Tokyo. She is an architect and artist.

Viktorija uses photography, drawing, craft, and text as her artistic medium.
A part of her work stems from architectural upbringing through observation and engagement with sound and space.
Viktorija is also interested in her position as an immigrant, woman, amateur, etc., and the vulnerability and strength related to that position. Viktorija sees art as an opportunity to redefine one's ground and create bonds with abandoned and adopted places, languages, and communities.
