In this presented series, the work explores my native country - Lithuania. Through the devices of non-linear narrative constructions, the work brings new light to the relationship between the poetic, the photographic, and the remembered.
The nation’s histories, art movements and personal archives make conceptual connections between the portrayal of females through the obvious and the unconscious at the level of the liminal. A personal dream on the plane about the motherland. The feeling of longing. The memory of place. The land you cannot reach.
Rather than being an exactitude, the harnessing of different photographic mediums and curatorial practices from the digital to DV camcorder, the family album, the artist's word and the Lithuanian landscape in observation. Gives new meanings to these disparate motifs.
Mythology and customs, offer new meanings and understanding to ourselves, our identities and the soil we exist on. This project becomes fictional documentation about my sense of longing for a place that only exists in my imagination.
