I wish to stop you for a moment. Lose yourself in a sea of stitches, let your mind flow on it.
Inga Liksaite is a visual artist. In her creative practice, mainly focused through a textile surface perspective, Inga works in solo, but also periodically involves in creative collaboration with other creators, architects, interior designers.
Inga was born in Kaunas, Lithuania, in 1972, recent years she's based in Berlin. Her work has been shown actively in Lithuanian and European art scene since 2000. Over the years she has developed her unique aesthetic language. Liksaite's textiles, mostly recognizable as moderated images, rhythmically stitched, come as sewn, embroidered wall canvases, sometimes develop into three-dimensional objects or installations, or in collegial work with other artists get a shape of moving pictures. Therefore time consuming processes are inevitable in her stitched work, but together the creative territory shifts circularly when reviewing creativity in a time-line, a unique creative transformation evolves.
Over the years she has acquired valuable collaboration experiences with artists working in other mediums, among others a contemporary dance-textile art project commissioned by Kaunas Art Biennial (2011). She has received numerous distinctions for her solo works, including the prestigious Embroidery Guild Grand Prize at international Art Of The Stitch Award (Birmingham 2007) and Grand Prize at Still-Life, Pfaff Challenge (London, 2007)
