This unique artwork perfectly exemplifies Lithuanian artist Ieva Rojūtė’s creative flare. In her artistic practice, Rojūtė uses a combination of typography and spoken language that can be understood as a vernacular street art expression. It is in this work and others of hers that she demonstrates an integrity that is formed between both visual and conceptual expressions. Through the use of familiar phrases, Rojūtė connects her viewers’ experience with the artwork’s meaning, attempting to bring about a deja vu effect as if the viewer had already heard her expressive fragments of dialogue elsewhere. It also reveals the array of resources Rojūtė explores in her connective practice, linking human relationships to family constructs, individual identity conflicts, and everyday folklore.
