"In my works, I explore connections between people, the family construct, conflicts in the individual’s identity and everyday folklore. The main themes I keep revisiting are the possibility of failure, misfortune, anxiety and fear. I’m interested in this insistent assertion of one experience at the expense of other experiences that we can see playing out in many of today’s touchy issues as well as personal lives. I take a trip across the collective subconscious, from childhood complexes to the most primeval common past or dreams.

I make use of street art aesthetic and, at first glance, it may seem like an infantile approach to accessing deep-seated and shared experiences. By deconstructing literature, abstract folklore, oral hybrids and dreams in my installations, I look for continuity and dialogue. When I take part in group exhibitions, I seek and respond to works that are put next to mine. At the same time, I want to discover and analyze folklore through personal experience, I am after new ways to turn a verbal construct into a space to go to. Usually the place is unpleasant, one where you would not want to linger. The main goal is to have my pieces resonate with the viewer and the space they’re put into.

Sweet Look is one of my latest attempts to trace the conflict between the supernatural and the human. The installation speaks of a human being in need of being rescued from something. I construct a certain message from personal experiences, diary entries, hearsay. It is not the first time I find myself in a role of questioning self-preservation (e.g., Vaikeli, tu pražūsi (You Will Perish, My Child), 2013, Abstraction Will Destroy You, 2017). The topic tends to haunt me and remind of itself via different channels.

For my MOTHER & TONGUE solo exhibition at Editorial, I would attempt to cure and kill neurotic phantasies, while listening to strange tips about how to survive or solve something." - Ieva Rojūtė
