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.
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.
