The place I like best in this world is the kitchen.
No matter where it is, no matter what kind, if it’s a kitchen, if it’s a place where they make food, it’s fine with me. (…) I love even incredibly dirty kitchen to distraction. (…) Now only the kitchen and I are left. It’s just a little nicer than being all alone. (Kitchen /// Banana Yoshimoto )

[email protected]: you and your favourite room are left instead… (choose one, describe it and tell why)
Agne Raceviciute: What is left is me and my mind which in a manner of speaking is my favourite room. It can’t be defined, it seems impossible to describe it, it is full of tunnels, there is no day or night, it is not palpable, it is not physical and this is a place that makes me feel infinitely fine. I can move, be alone, open the curtains of an hotel’s room, have nothing at all but take refuge in my personal room. There is something really magnetic and fascinating in the fact of not being tied to objects, to rooms, to houses: you feel like not belonging to anything and not dependent. I believe that objects, artworks, walls have and incredible importance, an influence that provokes dependence.
Addiction and necessity to have and obtain something that often doesn’t really enrich us.
Objects are materials that lose their value by overlapping and multiplying themselves in the course of time. It is pleasant to know how to detach from it.

[email protected]: Always be ready to speak your mind, and a base man will avoid you”, from Proverbs of Hell by William Blake. why does it always worth to be yourself and always challenge yourself ?
AR: It is fool not do that, it would means letting an important part of ourselves die. To challenge ourselves, to be ready for the new, to discover are fundamentals to me: it is to feel the own person growing up and to make it stronger. Fear kills the mind and therefore it must be distorted and faced. I have a profound interest, almost attraction for true and conscious people who freely reveal their Being, showing themselves as they are and without fear of finding themselves vulnerable.

[email protected]: One of your own mantra sentences that you consider a sort of  good-luck charm.
AR: I never had my type of sentences and I don’t believe much in luck either. But lately when I am in the studio and I am working I try to have a specific sound and find myself having characteristic sounds for each type of development. There are LP playing for weeks or months and by then it is like I don’t hear them anymore, they become part of the environment and let me enter in certain concentration logic.
Maybe it is a sort of good-luck charm that can be linked to me.
