Intro
The Lithuanian contemporary jewellery and metal artist Neringa Poškutė-Jukumienė occupies a unique position in contemporary Lithuanian jewellery. She refuses to concentrate on creating objects for the body, let alone jewellery, focusing instead on the process itself. The performance Ringing II, presented at the contemporary art festival Virus in Šiauliai, created a cathartic experience simultaneously woven in religious symbols, high fashion catwalk culture and materiality of jewellery.
