- RAIMUNDAS MALAŠAUSKAS
B (for bacteria/biography) can tell you how many buildings its been in, how many bars its bored. But it would be nothing to you without their inveterate companion species, Raimundas Malasauskas-- a transnational, corn-filled, diasporic hyper object who is in turn a companion to and accompanied by other kinds of turning objects, often engaging in unintended dervish-like dances. Through times they have left many dizzy, some in awe and most physically disgusted. This might be due to their current manifestation which is slightly gelatinous but soft at touch, a horse nose.Selected recent and upcoming projects:Liverpool Biennial 2016, participant of the curatorial faculty;Tomorrow night I walked to a dark black star, Universidad Di Tella, Buenos Aires, 2014;
