Don’t have the heart to throw out that pile of ‘memories’, that ‘junk’ building up in the corner…?
You have heard of upcycling no doubt, transforming the old into the new and innovative. Well how about ‘pincycling’ (I thought it deserved a name)? Transform these unused items and memories into a memory capturing machine, the camera, the pinhole camera. Simple.
Hi, it’s great to get to know better. We noticed that you mostly work with the graphics’ technique. How did you discover this technique? Why is it the one you chose? Did you try or are you trying out other techniques?
I would link my choice of graphics’ technique with the fact that I studied in Vilnius’ Art Academy and in Šiauliai University because I finished this discipline recently. It’s hard to say what inspired me to choose graphics seven years ago. It might have been the pieces that I saw and that I perceived in my own way and professors, who organized the introduction courses… Even though I never was and never wanted to be an example graphics’ student, technique will always be only technique. Technique that was available and mastered at that time and which helps to create and creates a space for artistic (self-) expression.
At the moment, all objects that I create are always changing. Maybe there is less graphics left and more photography, sculptural objects, sound/image experiments appear (by using various materials). The most important object of expression in my art is the human body. However, I don’t want to forget graphics or drawing completely.

I’ve been doing music only probably for 14 years or something and I was like: “Hey, I need to do something. I need some more” – Henrik Vibskov unveiled with a petite smirk in his interview. Henrik Vibskov grew up in the middle of the countryside of Jutland, Denmark. He graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, and now engages in visual art, music and fashion from his base in Copenhagen. He is not just a fashion designer and crowning him with no more than a single coronet would probably be a vast underestimation. Multi-talented individual that is the avant-gardist of the new generation actually fashions the art itself.

The discussion and criticism Damien Hirst has generated, whether you like his work or not, cannot be ignored. His ironic statements and dismal pieces have attracted collectors and dealers for years. Some may argue he is even morally vacuous within the auctioning house. His current retrospective at the Tate doesn’t disappoint in the variety of reviews from critics across the broad. Many of these critics have looked unfavourably upon it, or upon Hirst and the agenda he promotes to the public. The philosophical eccentricities of his pieces cannot be denied, but the extravagance of his work and the money behind it is a factor I always find incomprehensible. I’m always seeking new ways of finding integrity within his work, but so far I’ve had no luck.
