Based in Vilnius and Amsterdam, Eglė Budvytytė works at the intersection between visual and performing arts. She approaches movement and gesture as technologies for a possible subversion of normativity, gender and social roles, and the dominant narratives governing public spaces. Spanning song, poetry, video, and performance, her practice explores the persuasive power of collectivity, vulnerability, and the permeable relationships between bodies, audiences, and environments. Her work has been shown at Whitechapel Gallery, London (2022); Venice Biennale (2022); Riga International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Riga, Latvia (2020); Renaissance Society, Chicago (2018); South London Gallery, London (2018); Lofoten International Art Festival, Lofoten, Norway (2017); Block Universe Performance Festival, London (2017); Art Dubai Commissions, Dubai (2017); Liste, Art Basel (2015); 19th Biennale of Sydney (2014); Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius, Lithuania (2016, 2010); Stedeljik Museum, Amsterdam (2012). Eglė was resident at Le Pavillon, Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2012) and at WIELS (Brussels, 2013).
