Based on conceptual art traditions, creation of Juozas Laivys involve experimental actions, series of ideas and objects by which he captures the flow of everyday processes without great intervention. According to art critic and curator Ūla Tornau, “Under a great influence of strategies of minimalistic conceptualism, the artist studies local perception processes, and visualizes universally prevailling phenomenons in the most obvious, and this way invisible, mode. The objects created by Laivys, usually composed from minimally meaningful things, avoid representation and direct talking”.
