Geistė Marija Kinčinaitytė (b. 1991, Lithuania) is an artist and researcher currently pursuing a PhD in Film and Screen Studies at the University of Cambridge. Her research interests include media archaeology, video art, photography and installations.
Geistė Kinčinaitytė calls herself an alien anthropologist. Her image-making practice is defined by encounters with the eerie - something that can be described both as stepping out of the comfort zone — whether of the self, human, habit, habitat, or milieu — and an alertness to a yet-to-be-identified presence. Kinčinaitytė’s visual practice is based on self-perception, exploring different environments and reflecting upon the concept of humanity as a whole. The artist’s sensitive approach usually induces an uncanny feeling hidden somewhere in the dim lighting. In her installations, Kinčinaitytė likes to use deep-coloured lights, thus giving the works a mystical atmosphere. Her creative content is based on comprehensive artistic research. Mainly working in the fields of photography and video, she is always open for collaborations with writers, composers and other artists sharing similar interests in the exploration of the unknown.
Geistė Kinčinaitytė has presented her works in solo exhibitions in Lithuania, the UK and Norway. She is also an active participant in group shows, while her works have been included in the collection of the Lewben Art Foundation (Lithuania) and some private collections.
