Emilija Škarnulytė (b. 1987, Vilnius, Lithuania) is a visual artist and film-maker. She researches the psychological power wielded on us by our environment. Her videos and multi-media installations, which interweave fiction with documentary films, reflect the invisible relationships between the physical world and our social power of imagination – from the perception of geological time and its influence on our relationship to history to the way in which immense conflicts inscribe themselves in the structure of the Earth. For the exhibition at the Kunsthaus Pasquart she has created an immersive video-sound-landscape that runs through all the spaces of the first level. The second part of the display includes new productions and existing works that reflect on the artist’s career as she has engaged with various narratives, materials and techniques. Alongside video works objects, photography and mosaics complement the exhibition.
