«Provoked by the notion of 'the absence of women's voices', the "Ruta Remake" project works as a mapping device to redraw a traditional pattern, that concerns a politics of identity in the Lithuania of today. In this context, Ruta (rue) is a specific weaving pattern that refers to a perennial plant with a strong, heavy odor and a bitter taste; also known as the 'herb of grace'. Lithuanian patriarchal tradition has framed a space for the muting of women's voices; a space that understands the weaving as writing, followed by singing as a way of storytelling. Writers, linguists, philosophers, music theorists, singers and activists joined the "Ruta Remake" project to investigate the role of the woman's voice as a territory between social construction and metaphysical phenomena. Through the shared recollections of media they build a pathway to navigate from the past to the present. The Ruta pattern is selected to provide a system for a sound notation, a shuttle for composing the voice threads of the archive, as lines of information and as routes, joined in patterns packing relationships between voice and language. The weaving structure of the Ruta pattern instigates and controls the behaviour of the notation system that transforms the space into an informational model.» http://www.cac.lt/en/exhibitions/past/04/1423
