Liudmila is a Lithuanian bedroom hyperpop collective, mainly featuring Miša Skalskis and Milda Januševičiūtė. Liudmila uses popular culture as a vehicle for exploring vulnerability, emotional well-being, and the challenges of intimacy in the contemporary world. By appropriating and sampling popular culture, Liudmila reflects on its own experiences and expresses them through a unique lens that draws from both their cultural heritage and the global popular culture that influences us all.
Liudmila’s use of pop culture and music tropes is a tool for exploration and commentary, creating a bridge between the personal and the collective, and the local and the global. Liudmila’s lyrics speak to the angst of misfits dreaming big (and the loneliness and inherent contradictions of modernity).
Liudmila have presented live performances at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki (2022); the 14th Baltic Triennial, Vilnius (2021); and Rupert, Vilnius (2020). They released the Album ‘Liudmila’ in 2021 and have shown video and sculptural works at Editorial, Vilnius (2021).
