Paulina Pukyte (b. 1966, Vilnius) is an artist, writer, essayist, and curator of the 11th Kaunas Biennial. She writes critical and satirical articles on cultural issues and has published a collection of essays, and two fiction books. In her interdisciplinary artistic practice she makes site-specific interventions and moving image, often using found artefacts and found texts. Poetic and ironic, as well as critical, her work twists perspectives and meanings, questions accustomed truths, deconstructs socio-ideological myths and socio-cultural clichés. Her art strategies are often consciously restrained, almost invisible, and she embraces serendipity. Paulina Pukytė acts as a mediator between art and life, an interpreter and transmitter of cultural experience, rehabilitating what is seemingly unimportant and inferior but terribly human.
