''Gas-mask, nitric acid and varnish. Etching for me is like fortune telling with coffee grounds: there's the drawing but the print has a life of its own.''
Reda is an avant-garde artist. Over the last three decades she has exhibited her otherworldly phantasmagoric stories all over the world - from Poland to Japan. Her exhibition "Games of Men" is arguably her best work, exploring symbols across time and space; contrasting body builders, Yorkshire terriers with ancient bone and skull art and medieval fashion.
Reda cuts through the traditional boundaries with her work spanning performance art, theater, scenography and costume design. She and her husband artist Arūnas Uogintas are the founders of a performance art group "The Archeologists". In their work "The Archeologists" marry the traditions and motifs rooted in theater with those found in performance art. Show and drama, genuine and professional, live and performed weave to create a world that Reda and her group share with us.
Reda Uogintiene represented Lithuania at The Venice Biennale in 2011
