“Amber Room series explores the condition of nostalgia in the context of migratory experiences and shifts in political regimes. The very first impulse to explore nostalgia was personal – as far as I can remember I have been a nostalgic person. I would long for experiences I have never had and times I wasn’t born yet to know: my parents’ bohemian youth or my grandmother’s Polish Wilno. However, at the age of 20, I moved from Lithuania to Scotland and that’s when I started thinking about nostalgia, identity, longing and migration in more detail.”
