About the artist

I am using recycled materials and especially various recycled packaging containers to create art. My art items aim to create an aesthetic contentment for the beholders looking at the containers containing different things and different meanings.

Art attempts to make the beholders Content observing art, Contained in the recycled Containers.

"I am a Lithuanian artist living in Iceland and juggling three languages – Lithuanian, English and Icelandic – every day. The idea and a description of this exhibition appeared in English event it is not my native language. It made more sense in English as I learned to talk and discuss sustainability and globalization in English. Many English words became international and are used to define global issues in Lithuanian language. But not in Icelandic. I learned a lot making efforts to express the ideas of the exhibition both in Lithuanian and Icelandic."

Jurgita Motiejunaite born in 1974, graduated from Vilnius Art Academy in 1999. Since then she has participated in numerous exhibitions and projects. Jurgita lives and works in Reykjavík.
