Lina Lapelyte

Lapelyte is an artist who divides her time between London and Vilnius. She holds a BA in classical violin, a BA in sound arts and a MA in sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London. Her performance-based practice is rooted in music, flirting with pop culture, gender stereotypes, aging, and nostalgia.

Her latest works – “Ladies” (2015), “Hunky Bluff” (2014) and “Candy Shop” (2013/2015) – were shown in different contexts and locations, including the Serpentine Pavilion in London, the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, and the Venice Architecture Biennial.

Her collaborative work with Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė and Vaiva Grainytė, the opera “Have a Good Day!” (Lithuania, 2011/2013) a piece written for ten cashiers, piano and supermarket sounds, has received several awards, among them the main prize of the Fast Forward Festival (Germany). For this work, the artist group was awarded with the Golden Stage Cross and Young Artist Prize by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture.

Lapelyte’s works were shown at the Baltic Pavilion, Venice Biennial, Venice (2016); Peculiar People, Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea/Great Britain (2016), Double Bind, NILO, Reykjavik (2016) and Rupert, Vilnius (2015); Listening, Hayward touring show, Great Britain (2015); Block Universe, London (2015); Park Nights, Serpentine, London (2014); Baltic CCA, Newcastle/Great Britain (2014); Eye and Lense, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2014); DRAF, London (2014); BBC Proms, Royal Albert Hall (2012), London.
