The idea of the project called “Come in the form of milk” is to reinterpret the memorial to the victims of Nazism at the Ninth Fort in Kaunas in a visual language, with emotional rather than logical associations. To capture the genius loci and to remind us of human resilience: psychological, emotional, physical, and in the form of community. I took the iconology directly from the supreme part of the memorial which symbolizes liberation, depicting a powerful flow of figures emerging from violence and terror, and breaking free from oppression. A prominent feature is the clenched fists crowning the composition, so I focused on this gesture and developed it further.
