Agnė Jokšė, “Lezbynai”, performance

13 September 2024, 19:30 and 20:30


BERLIN, STURM AND SLANG, UPCOMING



The reading-performance Lezbynai is an erotic story about lesbian love in the background of the Lazdynai district where the artist grew up. The residential houses lined up in front of each other in this neighbourhood create a situation of a kind of panopticon, when everyone watches everyone, so any intimate gesture becomes both private and public at the same time. In Jokšės’s story, this situation becomes a medium for spreading a sexual, unbridled fantasy, which, unfolding within the artist’s relationship with her lovers, paints the seemingly silent concrete walls of the district’s buildings and penetrates the lives and thoughts of the people living there.
