I For Nested Pattern / photo-based performance / 2020 - ongoing
Questioning the current times and our collective future, I have turned to my ancestors to look for answers. In I For Nested Pattern series, I document myself through photo-based performances in natural and urban environments. I am reimagining gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, and other types of nature spirits from Lithuanian myths, legends, and folklore. These mythological beings embody nature and cosmos itself, reminding us that we hold power over birth, death, and rebirth. My hope is that this body of work offers wisdom and power, serving as conduits to view the sacred symbolism of Lithuania.
