Agnė Juodvalkytė is a visual artist currently living in Berlin and Vilnius. Her practise is focused on textiles and abstract painting mostly. She received a BA in Painting at the Vilnius Academy of Arts (2010) and studied Visual Arts and Cinematography in Spain at the Universidad de Castilla La Mancha (UCLM, Facultad de Bellas Artes de Cuenca) (2009). Her recent shows include ANSKA at the Blake & Vargas gallery in Berlin; group show Audra at the Pamario gallery in Juodkrantė, Lithuania, Cosmic Thread at the Enter Art Space (Aarhus, Denmark); Terpė at AV17 gallery in Vilnius (2020).
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 artefacts extending not only into space but also into time.
Phillipe Gerlach is a visual artist and photographer whose work and influences stem from the personal and autobiographical. Born in Grenoble, France he grew up in France, Canada and Bavaria. After graduating Kunstuniversität Linz in Austria in 2008, he moved to London to assist artist Nick Waplington. Then, dfter living in Paris he moved to Berlin in 2011, where he now lives and works.
In trying to merge his personal life with his artistic practice, Philippe Gerlach creates longterm portrait series of friends, lovers and acquaintances that are instilled with sentiments of intimacy and immediacy. Incorporating digital and analog photographic techniques, his wall installations are less focused on the single image, but on building a mesh that connects recent memories to older ones. Frequently these networks are enforced through nods to subculture and music.Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique/Junk DNA) is an American sound composer, currently residing in Vilnius.
