Ulijona Odišarija: Softening (bedside chest)

Ulijona Odišarija: Softening (bedside chest)

A bedside chest in a rented room is dreaming itself being a meadow. 

Ulijona Odišarija lives and works in London. She completed Masters in Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2016. Ulijona makes videos, photography, texts, objects and installations. 

Her practice is led by internal, sometimes dream logic and intuition. She uses and recreates found images, memories and the artefacts and observations of the everyday. She makes music and sometimes dj’s as Sweatlana and Former Child Star and is a founding member and vocalist of a band Steve & Samantha.

Her work has been presented at Toronto International Film Festival (Toronto, Canada), Close Up Cinema, ICA, Chalton and IMT galleries (London, UK), Contemporary Art Centre and National Art Gallery (Vilnius, Lithuania), Import Projects (Berlin, Germany), LIMA Foundation and PAKT (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Showroom (New York, USA) and was published in a book on young Lithuanian photography ‘Like there’s no tomorrow’ (Rupert, 2013) and ‘Lithuanian Photography: Yesterday And Today’ (Union Of The Lithuanian Art Photographers, 2016).
