About me

Artist Statement Dalia Smaizyte ( Dal Gene) is a mixed media Lithuanian artist who at the moment lives in London. Her practice spans a broad range of media including bricolage, photomontage, sculpture, collage, photography and digital mixed media. Her performances are combined with video, photography and objects. She is the main subject and object. Dalia’s work is influenced by the experimental work of Bruce Nauman, Meredith Monk, La Monte Young and Samuel Beckett. Do we know who we are? Dalia as an artist asks whether our identity is fixed and stable or in a constant state of flux? This work is an attempt to bring together in a sustained and somewhat disciplined way themes that recur in her work consciously or unconsciously; SELF, OTHER, BODY, ACTION, TRACE AND OBLIVION. The relationship between language and the body and connecting issues of identity in space and time. The strangeness of the utterly close at hand, the common object, the everyday and that is at the same time the infinitely unknown. By exploring the shifting nature of personal and collective identity she seeks to change her surroundings or to transfer herself to different contexts in order to reach a better understanding of what it means to be in the world.
