Eglė Čėjauskaitė-Gintalė, 2020, Lithuania


A few years ago, I began collecting flashes of a special feeling. I note them down: where it happened, at what time, what I was doing at that moment, what colours were surrounding me, whether there was any smell in the air, and so on. What are those flashes of feeling? They are bursts of indescribable pleasure and goodness, without any thoughts, that catch me just like that, for no particular reason, as a boom out of nowhere. And just as suddenly as they come, they vanish.

What I am trying to capture in my brooches is like the fluttering of the butterfly of the moment.
