Ulijona Odišarija & Rūta Kiškytė
Nothing But 2, 2013
NOTHING BUT 2 is Rūta Kiskis and Ulijona Odišarija’s second collaboration investigating how changing contexts and situations can modify the meaning of words and images. The zine is a collection of photographs documenting handmade white silk shawls with exquisitely embroidered blurbs from Twitter in various situations in Vilnius, Lithuania. Insignificant, misspelled and trivial phrases are placed into a new context and change the meaning of the text and encourage new ways of perceiving it.
London based Lithuanian artist Ulijona Odišarija makes video, photography, objects, music, texts and installations. She also DJs and performs under her musical alter ego Sweatlana. Ulijona recently graduated from Masters in Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.
Uljona’s work has been presented at ICA in London (2016), Import Projects in Berlin (2016), UNNAWAY in Huddersfield (2016), PAKT in Amsterdam (2015), Showroom in New York (2014) and was published in a book on young Lithuanian photography ‘Like there’s no tomorrow’ (2013).
