“My work can be described with the concepts of philotopy and genius loci. The first – defines a specific way of thinking that is rooted in a specific place – the native land and provides the opportunity to engage in the contemplation of universal and global contexts with a positioned and embedded thinking. The second is dedicated to the analysis of specific areas, their uniqueness and the local spirit. Creation for me is a language in which I can express the phenomenological experiences of the analysis of specific places, objectified and materialized culture analysis, which are aimed at analyzing the topic of local identity in a global society.” – Petras Lincevičius.
