Aistė's Marija's Stankevičiūtė's work unfolds around ancient myths and contemporary bling culture, where pieces of architecture cling to human skin in the form of words and clothing.

Through fields of visual art, fashion, theater and art criticism, she delves into themes of intimate connection between buildings and human beings, possibilities of self-expression, pleasure and curiosity. Her work is a snake on a railing, a letter wiggling through text and textiles.

Based in Vilnius, Lithuania.
