I curated several exhibitions of contemporary art, such as a group show “Insecure” (Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius, 1998) and participated in several exhibitions of photography and contemporary art.

My interests also involve art therapy (I organised an art therapy group in a women’s prison) and art in public space (e.g. the Writer’s street in Vilnius) and picture books (video installation on illustrators exhibition, FARMLEYGH gallery, Dublin, 2015.)

2017 I published my first novel ‘‘Bad Vegan”.

The project Beauty Remains is widely spread around the world and  I received a grant from Lithuanian Council for Culture to continue my artistic study of  Soviet garage doors and to creat new project.
