Bio

Eglė Ambrasaitė can be located in a spot reserved for interdisciplinary art: she is both an artist, a curator and a researcher. Her interdisciplinary studies – Bachelor in Film, Video and Interactive Arts (Middlesex University, London), Masters in Social and Political Critique (Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas) and her ongoing PhD research in Comparative Gender Studies (Central European University, Vienna) – have transformed her artistic work into a critical and challenging medium that crystallizes in the language of both visual arts (video/sculpture/installation), various forms of written materials and her curatorial practices for Aikas Žado Laboratory* (Žeimiai Manor House), a non-profit interdisciplinary art center, based in Žeimiai Manor House, Lithuania. At the moment, her main artistic and curatorial practices circulate around the themes of crip materialities, bodies/embodiments and healing. Her theoretic interests encapsulate new materialist and affect theories, critical disability studies and dark ecology.
