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 and is actively reassessing her archive and creating new work.
Part of it stems from architectural upbringing through observation and engagement with sound and space. Viktorija is also interested in her position as an immigrant, amateur, etc. She explores physical and psychological tensions and cracks and searches for bonds with abandoned and adopted places, languages, and communities.
