Marija Teresė Rožanskaitė constructed assemblages not by the accumulation of things, but rather through an opening up of inner spaces. We can see them as chora in Julia Kristeva‘s sense – as a container where ideas are born. For her, cosmic shapes and the morphology of women‘s body are closely intertwined.

Marija Teresė Rožanskaitė (1933–2007) is one of the pioneers of the Lithuanian modernism. Scientists III,  is from a triptych and were painted in 1969 when the first man set foot on the Moon. The other two works belong to Lithuanian Art Museum and the Lewben Art Foundation.  At the time, Rožanskaitė was exploring hybrid relations of the fragile human body and technology. Her paintings, objects and installations explored political and ecological threats.

Rožanskaitė produced abstract, fantastical compositions on the theme of cosmos and chaos, which combined organic and technical forms in an original way. Sometimes she saw them in her dreams and boldly expressed her visions with bright acid colours.
