COSMIC THREAD

AGNE JUODVALKYTÈ

2-24 October 2020

OPENING 2. October 2020

ARTIST TALK 3. October 2020
Kl.12.00 – 13.00

 

Det er med stor glæde at vi kan byde velkommen til billedkunstner Agne Juodvalkyté og til hendes første soloshow i Danmark. En del af værkerne til udstillingen Cosmic Thread er skabt i september under hendes ophold på Tækker AIR West.

Agnė Juodvalkytė‘s kunstneriske praksis, der har sine rødder i Litauen, kombinerer abstraktion og figuration, virkelighed og det imaginære.

Hun arbejder med forskellige tekstile materialer, blandt andet beklædningsgenstande og originale tekstiler skabt af hendes bedstemor på landet i Litauen.

I værkerne indarbejder hun naturpigmenter, grafit, planter, og en række andre materialer. Tekstilerne er for hende et redskab til at forstå kultur, historie og teknologi. 

Agné’s værker, der ofte præsenteres i en kropslig skala, har en iboende bevægelse der bringer fortiden ind i nutiden. De multidimensionale værker udfolder sig ikke alene rumligt, men også over tid.


ARTIST TALK

Lørdag 3. October 2020 kl. 12-13

Transfering garments into objects of Art
Artist‘s ambivalent relationship with her homeland

Agnė Juodvalkytė vil præsentere sin kunstneriske praksis og fortælle om sine seneste tekstile værker, som blev skabt på hendes bedstemors gård.
Hun vil fortælle om sine rødder og sit hjemlands betydning for hendes kunstneriske praksis, og om genbrug af materialer og det at vokse op i Litauen.

Agnė Juodvalkytė (f. Vilnius, 1987) er billedkunstner og bosat i Berlin og Vilnius.
Hun tog afgang (BA) i maleri fra Vilnius Academy of Arts (2010) og studerede billedkunst og cinematografi i Spanien på Universidad La Mancha (UCLM, Facultad de Bellas Artes de Cuenca, 2009)

________________________________________________

 

We are really happy to welcome visual artist Agnė Juodvalkytė to have her first solo show Cosmic Thread in Denmark at Enter ArtSpace in Aarhus. A part of the works for this show are made in September at her stay at Tækker AIR West.

Agnė Juodvalkytė‘s artistic practice, rooted in the contexts of Lithuania, combines abstraction and figurative, the real and the imagined.

Agnė Juodvalkytė uses textiles as a framework to understand culture, history and technology. She works with different materials, such as clothes, textiles, natural pigments, graphite dust, fabrics made by her grandmother, plants, and incorporates various mediums.

Often presented in an anthropomorphic way, her works breathe their past into the present, becoming multidimensional artifacts extending not only into space but also into time.
