Emilija Škarnulytė´s work consists of a series of politically active visions, in which she investigates reality with a political and poetic approach. She explores questions of the beginning of the universe in relation to the geological ungrounding processes, invisible structures, geo-traumas and deep ­time.
Her films look into a relation between art and science and the cross sections of non-human scale systems and desire. Škarnulytė was educated at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art in Tromsø. She is also a founder of Polar FilmLab in Tromsø, Norway.
