Artist Beatričė Mockevičiūtė will be creating a scarecrow public sculpture at Akee

This spring Akee Space for Culture organized an open call for artists to create a public sculpture at Akee territory inspired by the topic of scarecrow. We are delighted to share the news that contemporary artist Beatričė Mockevičiūtė is selected to create this sculpture in Aleknaičiai this summer.

Beatričė Mockevičiūtė is a young generation artist whose work is associated with the opportunity to perceive what is often transparent and ephemeral in everyday life. Since 2013, the artist has participated in exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. Her works have been previously presented in institutions such as the Contemporary Art Center, the project spaces “Autarkia” and “Swallow,” as well as the House of Lithuanian Composers in Vilnius, the Vejle Art Museum in Denmark, and elsewhere. In 2021, a public sculpture from her ongoing series “Asukas” was implemented in the Paupys district of Vilnius.

The sculpture “Scarecrow” will be presented in Aleknaičiai village at the end of August, 2023. For the updates of the project, please follow our news.
