CELSIUS 273 - ARTIST DEDICATED CREATIVITY TO BRUTAL WORLD
My name is Gerda Liu. I'm designer and artist. I grew up in Lithuania, Eastern Europe. My world was fullfilled with brutalist horizont and grey sky. Now, I'm CELSIUS 273 and invite you to find the piece of the city from my arms and soul.

BRUT_LIST | ODE TO THE EASTERN EUROPEAN BLOCK HOUSES
My latest concrete jewelry collection inspired by the Eastern European block houses about individuality and commonality.
This collection is a grotesque story about our home and ourselves. About the loneliness in the crowd, the relentless, involuntary desire to belong, about differences and our similarities. Collection as if creating a space in which we choose (?) to be, although we do not always acknowledge this.
The collection echoes the motifs of apartment buildings that blend in the apocalypse scenario with the person and change us. An apartment building in Eastern Europe is an iconic, controversial symbol of modern life that can name our states, aspirations, and fears and at the same time protect us from ourselves.
Collection won National Design prize GOOD DESIGN I place and GIT's World Jewelry Design Award 2020 | II place.

Concrete jewelry collection inspired by Kaunas city interwar modernist architecture
THE CONCRETE CITY | KAUNAS Invites you to take a fresh look at Kaunas architecture and discover connections with yourself, to sense the impetus of the city, feel the synthesis of space and human experiences brought together in details. How did perception of the city develop? What is the meaning of the modernism today? Multifarious identity constantly inspires us to see things in different roles. This collection shapes a room for thoughts, where the human, the nationality, and the history merge.Once it was prophesied the great glory for Kaunas and Laisvės alėja (Liberty Boulevard) was compared to Hollywood. There are lots of stories but the truth is, that Kaunas today can be proud of its unique identity – modern architecture of the interwar. It is a sign, that Europe starts in Kaunas…
Concrete jewelry collection inspired by Tokyo metabolist architecture
Concrete jewelry collection inspired by Tokyo metabolist architecture was created for DESIGNART Tokyo festival in Japan. Collection exhibited in Tokyo and Lithuania.
This collection aim is to draw attention to motifs of buildings that change architectural form and acquire different meanings. The collection beckons to experience the primal frame of reference, where simple urban motifs and shapes turn into utopian and realistic urban components able to unfold in the context of the transformation of the city.
Collection won DFA Design for Asia awards (Merit prize)
CELSIUS 273 collection for MO MUSEUM
Lithuanian Modern Art Museum (MO museum) asked me to create special collection for museum. I created RED DOTS collection inspired by art feeling. When you see something special, you can feel a dot, focus on it. RED DOT on concrete jewelry symbolise the feeling of MO.
