Punishment

Roma Auškalnytė

Roma Auškalnyté uses her own body as plate and press machine. She explores the concepts of truth and text, bodily responses and the understanding of printmaking. Punishment is a work that experiments with a combination of what at first glance might appear to be distinctly different mediums: printmaking, video and performance art. 

Artistic Statement

Printmaking processes influence my work: I am intrigued by how they may lead to new and ambiguous transformations of old ideas. I explore the body as material, and the importance of gesture and repetition - processes that are always hidden behind the final print.
