The blurry dialogue between “nature” and the artifice has always been at the core of my design interest; I collect the evidence

of human world-making peculiarities and transform it into authentic narratives,

both present and fictional.

Gundega's work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions in museums across Europe, such as the Museum of World Cultures in Amsterdam, VanAbbe Museum, Milan Salone del Mobile, and most recently CentroCentro in Madrid. She also curates themed exhibitions at Yksi Expo in Eindhoven and de Heuvel Gallerie, highlighting the work of young creatives and design school graduates.
