Lakus in the Lithuanian language stands for rapidly evaporating. Glass and stone are both the same material, only one is a previous version of it. Here, they meet in the individually shaped forms: one that is given and formed over years and another that is forced by a destructive tool, fire. The poetic gesture of covering an old body, lets us forget about the destructive action needed to achieve this and emphasizes rapid evaporation which might affect both objects in years.

Her practice focuses on our everyday visual culture; she creates immersive installations out of speculative and imaginary formations in which she greets the viewer with soothing yet insistent gestures, by which the artist aims to critically and poetically question individually perceived reality.
