Justas Pipinis’ interdisciplinary practice is concerned with the human condition and sense-making. Through playful spontaneity, fuzzy framing and thinking through making, Justas tickles norms and conventions, exploring how we make sense of the world we live in. What gets our attention and why? How do we know what we think we know? Where are our blind spots? How do we deal with the unknown, the complex, the unexpected?
Justas was propelled into art practice by his anthropology studies at Stockholm University (Sweden) and Vienna University (Austria). He studied various artistic disciplines at Karlstad University, Konstfack and Umeå Academy of Fine Arts in Sweden and RMIT in Australia. His works have been experienced with and without institutional support in Australia, Austria, Germany, Indonesia, Lithuania, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States, and the Internet. Justas has also undertaken artistic residencies at Not Quite (Sweden) and Bogong Centre for Sound Culture (Australia). Currently, he is a PhD candidate at RMIT University in Melbourne.
