Books

I am interested in how book is imagined and its representation in language, culture and history. I consider book though twilight points in systems of cognition and organisation, such as transitional processes of archives and memory, spaces between linguistic categories, sets; their descriptions, attributions and distributions; links between categories and the very very fascinating role of metaphor in all of this.

My books emerge as a discovery from intuitive creativity, experimentation and academic research. I tend to work in small editions, which can sell out within a year. I enjoy a wide range of processes and materials from the stacks of chaos in my studio. I frequently refer to book history and cognitive metaphor theories to ground my work.

I hold MA English Linguistics (VDU, Kaunas, Lithuania) and MA Visual Arts (Book Arts) (Camberwell College of Arts, UAL, London). My work is held in many private and public collections, such as Museum Meermanno (Amsterdam, Holland), Centre international de poesie (Marseille, France), Museum of Fine Art (Boston, USA), Center for Fine Print Research, (UWE, Bristol), Tate Library's Special Collection, British Library's Collection of Artist's Books, etc.

MUG CUP KNIFE LADLE explores transition from fluidity of thought to written text. The book follows a path of thinking from the initial visual trigger to a composed poem, using a set of rules which imitate creative process: each new page only contains the words used previously or their collocates within two positions. The book was accumulated using British National Corpus at Brigham Young University. MUG CUP KNIFE LADLE is part of AMBruno's words collection.

people plously revere the memory by Egidija Čiricaitė

Egidija Čiricaitė, people plously revere the memory

Material stability of print allows voided ideas from the past to transcend into the new era. people plously revere the memory uses language and images of spaces (now non-existent) from a 1966 Soviet book about Kaunas (Lithuania) to explore the status of expelled memories. The book reads as a series of transitions between what there is now and what there was 50 years ago, with gaps in un-reconciliation between the two and the translucent bridges that almost do not exist. people plously revere the memory is part of AMBruno's [sic] collection.
