Lives and works in Vilnius

Born in Kaunas, Lithuania

Laisvydė Šalčiūtė produces painting, drawings, prints, artistic objects, installation, photography and literary texts. She gave over 40 solo exhibits and took part in over a hundred group shows in Lithuania and abroad. The artist has won the Lithuanian Art Creators Prize; five times, she has received the individual grants from the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture. Her artwork has been awarded by diplomas from different group shows. Her art pieces have been purchased by the Lithuanian Art Museum in Vilnius, Lewben Art Foundation, the MO Museum in Vilnius (active as Modern Art Centre (MAC) prior to 7 June 2017), the National M.K. Čiurlionis Art Museum in Kaunas and by individual art collectors in Lithuania and abroad.


The founding idea of Laisvydė Šalčiūtė’s art is that our feelings are shaped culturally – we ‘learn’ them. Such emotions mould individual human beings and guide their social actions, influencing their intuition, sensations, experience. In her artwork, the artist recreates reality by revisiting the cultural and social context, inspired by her authentic emotional response to it.  Her art is self-ironically emotional and inter-textual. The artist explores the phenomenon of post-emotionality of the Western world of nowadays.
