Sisters From Another mister is a jointly authored artistic identity of Milda Lembertaitė (Klaipėda, Lithuania) and Amelia Prazak (Vira Gambarogno, Switzerland). As a collective, they work with a free wheeling practice employing gender play, witty sculptural forms, musical interludes and video works. Humorous scenarios function as a pretext for more complex personal and public topics and critical positions.
Their approach to technology is a bodily and emotional one: the use of video as an extension of the physical self. What are the elements in which we exist, in which we inhabit ourselves, in the reality of everyday life dissolved in a fantasy of another world – not here, not there. Where is the last frontier of the human, a lost frontier, embedded in geological time, artificial authenticity, stretching through eternity? The idea of displacement or fragmentation of bodies: body as human-scape, the body as visual geometry and its surface lies at the centre of their research. How to be physical and not just a surface?
