In their work Dorota Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite address feminist inspired theory and fiction, technology-driven emancipation and discursiveness of space. They work within a variety of media, starting with performance through installation, fragrance, sculpture to video. With YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP (YGRG), an ongoing serial project (2013-) they examine the relationships between reading, affect, distraction, togetherness and disunity, bodily and virtual presence, live action and documentation, they are interested in how the collective experience of being together can be inscribed in space and how language can become material and embodied.

Dorota Gaweda and Egle Kulbokaite are an artist duo founded in 2013. Both are MA graduates of the Royal College of Art, London (2012). They are the founders of YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP (2013- ) and Agatha Valkyrie Ice (2014 - ).
They have recently exhibited their work at: Les Urbaines Festival, Lausanne (2018); Spazio Maiocchi, Milan (2018); Galerie Lucas Hirsch, Dusseldorf (solo, 2018); 6th Athens Biennale (2018); Festival Do Disturb #4, at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2018); Prairie, Chicago (2017); Baltic Triennial XIII, at CAC Vilnius (2017); Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2017) and MOMA, Varsaw (2017) among others.
