Agnė Juodvalkytė, Anska

Through photographs of the studio process and visual sketches the first publication “ANSKA” by artist Agnė Juodvalkytė offers an overview of the artist's studio practice from the past years while creating a sensory world of recollection. The book marks the conclusion of this cycle in her work.

“In Agnė Juodvalkytė’s work, the weave that is bound by cloth, ash, dirt, and dye, invokes memory, utility, and hand-infused labor. The stains, folds, and strained fraying edges of her chosen material are also infused, caked, and distressed to provide new readings of production. There is something familiar in her use of textiles. Each fold of fabric is detailed by a weave birthed from the center spiraling out in an obstinate mosaic of emotion wrought from the plunder of self” – Brad Feuerhelm.  

Agnė Juodvalkytė is a visual artist currently based in Berlin and Vilnius. Her practice is focused on abstract painting and textiles mostly. She received a BA in Painting at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania. Her recent shows include solo exhibitions at the Galerie Bernau, Blake & Vargas gallery in Berlin; group exhibition Sweet Dreams Foundation, Nida Art Colony in Lithuania; Pamario gallery in Juodkrantė, Lithuania; Enter Art Space in Aarhus, Denmark; AV17 gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania.
