In the artist’s works autobiographical facts are turned into artistic material, plot, motif and theme. Each project is realization of a specific psychological state – the relationship of I with the past, family members or personal items. In the video project Vilnius From the Archives of My Childhood. Movement (2006) Albrikienė presents an accidentally discovered 8 mm film of her parents‘ wedding ceremony. It is also a document through which the artist is able to perceive not only the static portrait of her father (in photographs) but also how he looks in motion (video footage). It is very important to note that Albrikienė never had a chance to see her father, who died in a tragic accident several months before the birth of Lina.
