Agnė Jokšė

Agnė Jokšė (LT) works between Vilnius and Copenhagen, she holds a MFA from the Royal Danish Academy of Visual Arts and a BA in Monumental Painting from the Vilnius Academy of the Arts. Using the tools characteristic to autoethnography, Jokšė tells stories in which her experiences and past events related to contemplations of love, intimacy and friendship intertwine with imaginative reflections on the world surrounding these events. She works with writing, video, and performance, investigating questions concerning parallel histories, compassion, entangled relations, queerness and language.

Recent projects include a solo exhibition at Editorial (Vilnius), presentations at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2022), Artists’ Film International, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2021); Baltic Triennial 14 (2021); Publics, Helsinki (2021); NAC, Nida (2021); Mimosa House, London (2020); Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (2020). The artist’s work Dear Friend was granted the JCDecaux Award in 2019.
