Artists & Curator Tour | Dance As You Wrestle
Agnė Jokšė and Anastasia Sosunova with Adomas Narkevičius
Saturday, 10th December, 3pm
Join artists Agnė Jokšė and Anastasia Sosunova, with the exhibition's curator Adomas Narkevičius for a tour of the exhibition Dance As You Wrestle. Sosunova will expand on her distinctive material processes, providing insights into the queer iconographic vocabulary present in her works. Jokšė will elaborate on her approach to narrative, and the 'sincere' mode of address conveyed through her moving image works addressing care and love, both queer and between generations of her family scattered between UK and Lithuania.
The tour will last 30-40 minutes, followed by an audience Q&A. For full details about access follow the link here. If you have any additional access needs or questions about the tour, please contact Jessie Krish; jessie [at] cellprojects.org.
