Beatričė Mockevičiūtė and Gintautė Skvernytė

Beatričė Mockevičiūtė and Gintautė Skvernytė (b. 1994) – Both of their artistic practices evolve around industrial materials such as aluminum profiles, glycerin or paraffin. Besides their versatile purposes and seemingly translucid consistency, the materials are the result of numerous manufacturing processes: being recycled in various places and in different ways, they mark an interlaced production and consumption ecosystem, though the materials often are left out as invisible. Because of these qualities the materials for artists become a tool for reconsidering histories of specific places, as well as creating new imaginary stories that may come true in the future. Beatričė Mockevičiūtė and Gintautė Skvernytė create installations in which time is sort of suspended next to existing space and new layer of imagination and possibility is opened.

During Alternative Education program the young artists expect to jointly develop art strategies which was previously used individually and to deepen the their knowledge while communicating  with other artists sharing a similar practice. Desirable result is an installation in public city space in Vilnius or one of the regions, which would act for some time as a comment of a site.
