Milda Dainovskytė & Laurynas Skeisgiela

Milda Dainovskytė (b. 1989, LT) and Laurynas Skeisgiela (b. 1994, LT) are a Vilnius based artist duo. Milda is also a curator. In working through her practice, Milda usually chooses spaces that are personally important to her, many of which are peripheral. For her research she uses local history, specific locations, scents, and rethinks narratives. Laurynas works in the field of video art, installations, photography and cinema. In his practice, he responds and shapes specific spaces and links their contexts to photography theories and the anxiety of the present. Currently, the duo works and complements each other in the curatorial field. They started this dialogue by setting up a studio and meeting room at the train station in the city of Lentvaris.  They are currently exploring the role of artistic initiatives in negotiating the precarity and changing identity of this particular place. During the Rupert Alternative Educational programme, the duo plans to further develop their project at Lentvaris Central Station.
