After a tribute to her grandmother’s heritage (Heritage. Grandma’s Scarfs), Eglė has realised a project in which she reproduced a history of Vilnius’s old interiors. This project was presented in a solo exhibition You Came, You Saw, You Left: Cultural Floor in Titanikas exhibition halls in 2017 and KKKC Exhibition Hall, Klaipėda, Lithuania in 2018. Cultured Floor is a cycle of floor images, which consist of 25 motifs based on authentic floor tiles from flats, corridors, offices and banks in downtown Vilnius. A floor transferred to the wall became a painting. A portrait of the floor.
