My final project reflects my personal relationship with my mother tongue. Having migrated to the U.K at an early age, I wanted to make a body of work that explored the process of trying to solidify a Lithuanian identity. Whilst at my family home during the lockdown, I started to have conversations with my sister and mum about what it means to have lost touch with a mother language, and this continued whilst at CSM through interviews with girls who have experienced a language shift at home too. It’s an attempt to feel close to a culture that my language skills disconnect me from. By exploring family archive imagery and referencing this in my own work, I created my own visual language in an attempt to replace the language that was lost.
