Augustas Serapinas is based in Vilnius, Lithuania, but works frequently in other locations where he realises context based installations on site. His practice is developed around the alteration and manipulation of architectural spaces by contem plating their contexts and current or former purposes. With his interventions, Serapinas questions what is presented as reality.
Augustas Serapinas traveled to Moscow to realize a work on site of the VDNKh Pavilion Nr.1. His attention was directed towards forgotten or hidden places within the building and its walls. He turned a concealed spot behind the painting of Qui Zhije Map of the Third World into a tea room to which he continuously invited participants and visitors to join him for a Chinese tea ceremony.
