A series of site specific installations created by materials carried in my hand luggage. The exhibition is an ongoing investigation of the idea of creating work in response to travelling and what it is to create work within imposed restrictions.
Materials transform the given space into temporary installations, each testing its ability to adapt and alter the space. The installations will naturally alter during the period of the exhibition through the interactions of visitors and the ephemeral qualities of the chosen materials. Each piece will present a language of time and energy.
This exhibition is supported by:
Lithuanian Council for Culture
Kaunas City Municipality
In association with vytautas magnus university
Installation no.1 of 4
