Sticky Business (2016)

A short story was written and screen-printed on multiple posters in Glasgow as well as in Kauno Diena (Kaunas Day) newspaper when exhibited in Lithuania. The text speaks enigmatically of mistrust and suspicion between an unspecified “us” and “them”. Silk flag featuring abandoned Brutalist building in Kaunas was hand sewn and embroidered with an image of palm trees, blending an image of the 'exotics' of the East - never finished to be built in the soviet times brutalist Britanika hotel and the familiar scenes of old casbah gate with palm trees. A graffiti on the wall of the building says: Sticky Business. Perhaps this in deed is a sticky business...
