Elena Antanavičiūtė

A large part of her works are self-portraits. She exploits her image not because of narcissism but because of possibility to speak through it. Unlike people posing for selfies, she is not trying to portray herself as attractive, sexy, ready to communicate with others. In a sense, her works are diaries (especially drawings). These ‘ugly’ self-portraits are, on one hand, are therapy, an effort to reconcile with her own body. On the other hand, her works are masochistic self-punishment. She participated in several group exhibitions. In 2019, she completed undergraduate painting program at the Vilnius Academy of Arts.
