Edvardas Racevicius

Edvardas Racevičius was born in 1974 in Lithuania and has long been fascinated by the traditional and folkloric representation of sculptures. After 10 years of art-oriented high school, he decided to enter the Catholic seminary, studying theology and social pedagogy at the University of Vilnius, planning to become a priest and change the world. He stayed there for three years. Since 2002, he has been living in Greifswald, a small university town in Germany, where he has been able to study Western approaches to sculpture. His artistic practice is inspired by the dialogue between his Lithuanian origins and his new home in Germany, connecting Eastern and Western traditions
