Ona Juciūtė

Ona Juciūtė (b. 1988, LT) is a visual artist. Her practice could be described briefly as involving the transformation of visual experiences into physical objects. She is currently doing a Master’s degree in Sculpture at Vilnius Academy of Arts, while also working in curating. She has received a JCDecaux award for the best young artist in 2016 and was awarded with a prize by artist Aleksandra Kashuba in 2017. At Rupert, she is planning to continue one of her previous projects. The new piece will focus on disassembling luxury products from the fashion industry into the smallest constituent parts she can manage, then sewing these pieces back again while allowing chance mistakes to arise in doing so. With this project Ona wants to explore how things are actually made and what is the role of an individual in the process of production.
