365 Collages

Here are some photos from my exhibition – 365 collages – one for every day of the year.

My idea has been to make a sort of visual journal or record – one year of my life – in of photos, drawings, texts, bills, notes, tickets, scrap and fabric, bits and pieces.

I think life can be seen as a sort of collage in itself – like a big and colourful patchwork or one long line of moments.

 We all contain many aspects of personality, individuality but also of general character. We’re all trying to find a balance between duty and pleasure, between work and family, independence, freedom, solidarity and connection. Most of us struggle to find a way to express our inner self. And to find time for it. One minute here, one hour here, all squized in between the kids, the pets, the laundrary, the phone calling, the bills to pay, the things to do. Anyway, that’s some of the issues I’ve tried to describe with this exhibition.

All collages hang in order by day and month. Starting 1st January, ending 31st December. Some journal pages are very full, detailed and elaborate; other pages are more or less blank.

Before travelling to Vilnius I was so busy I actually never saw all pages at one time. So it was a pleasant surprise to see them all unfold and hang in “my” room.

You can see more photos at flickr.
