Marija.Griniuk, ‘The Nomadic Radical Academy I’, oil on canvas, 2020
I am Marija Griniuk (the artist behind the nomadic project BiteVilnius). My current interest is in exploring oil painting as the media to represent past performances. These paintings are inspired by the stills of video footage from my participatory performance The Nomadic Radical Academy, which was realised in Kaunas, Lithuania in 2019 as a part of BiteVilnius’ activities. The paintings are the subjective observation of the participatory performance, which I facilitate, where the observation is through the prism of me, as the artist behind the idea of performance and me, as a performer.
