Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė

Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė (lives and works in Vilnius) works as an artist, filmmaker and theatre director. In her creative practice, Barzdžiukaitė explores the gap between objective and imagined realities and playfully challenges an anthropocentric way of thinking. Barzdžiukaitė is one of three artists representing Lithuania at 2019 Venice Biennale with the performance-installation Sun & Sea (Marina), which won the Golden Lion for the best national pavilion. Her latest full-length documentary film-essay “Acid Forest” was awarded at the Locarno International Film Festival—among others—and it continues to travel to film festivals around the world.
