“I am interested in the creation of alternative points of view”, Augustas Serapinas has said. “They make for more diversity, which is often lacking in institutions and the art world in general ... I am always looking for these kinds of ‘glitches’”. He has profound respect for ‘make-do’ creativity, and his work often finds poignant inspiration in the everyday. Even at art school in his native Vilnius, Serapinas pushed against institutional confines, finding a hidden space within the Academy to use as a secret studio, and creating a bolthole for himself in a cavernous water pipe feeding into the Vilnelė River. In 2012, his final year at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, he noticed a group of children using the surrounding public space as a play area, and built climbing structures inside his studio for them to discover and incorporate into their games.
