Ieva Rojūtė
About
Ieva Rojūtė was born in 1989 in Lithuania and is currently based in Vilnius. In 2013 graduated from Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. Artist has exhibited her works in solo exhibitions at Editorial, Vilnius and Vartai Gallery, Vilnius; as well as in group exhibitions at La Murate, Florence; the National Martynas Mažvydas Library of Lithuania, Vilnius; Viennacontemporary, Vienna; and Vartai Gallery, Vilnius (2017).
In her works, artist explores connections between people, the family construct, conflicts in the individual’s identity and everyday folklore. The main themes she keeps revisiting are the possibility of failure, misfortune, anxiety and fear. Rojutė is interested in insistent assertion of one experience at the expense of other experiences that we can see playing out in many of today’s touchy issues as well as personal lives. She takes a trip across the collective subconscious, from childhood complexes to the most primeval common past or dreams.
