Ieva Baltaduonyte (b. 1988) is an emerging lens-based artist who lives and works in Lithuania. She is a graduate of the Photography BA programme at the Dublin Institute of Technology. Informed by her own experience of displacement, her work engages with issues relating to migratory culture. Transnational migration is perhaps the most highly contested issue across Europe – for new migrants, spatial and temporal displacement is potentially traumatic, resulting in shifting identities where home can no longer be understood as a fixed entity. Baltaduonyte is preoccupied with revealing personal and collective narratives where trauma, identity and memory encourage a deeper engagement with cross-cultural dialogue. By using photography as a means of personal expression, as well as to foster critical dialogue with contemporary society, Baltaduonyte invites viewers into topical debates. Her carefully foreground human experiences, exposing what is otherwise obscured or ignored.
