SULK III And all that you Change Changes me, 2019
Dorota Gawęda (b. 1986, Lublin, PL) and Eglė Kulbokaitė (b. 1987, Kaunas, LT) are an artist duo founded in 2013, based in Basel (CH) and Athens (GR). Both are graduates of the Royal College of Art, London (2012). In their work they address feminist inspired theory and fiction, technology-driven emancipation and discursiveness of space.

SULK III is the third iteration of a performance previously presented at ANTI - 6th Athens Biennale and Spazio Maiocchi in Milan. Central to SULK is the newly developed fragrance conceived in collaboration with International Flavors and Fragrances Inc. RYXPER 1126AE is a synthetic molecular replica produced on the basis of the smell collected with the use of headspace technology during the first performance at the 6th Athens Biennial in October 2018. This smell thus bears a poetic sign or memory of belonging to an intimate collective experience, of being and reading together but at the same time can be understood as an olfactory method of documentation of performance and space.

Both are graduates of the Royal College of Art, London (2012). In their work they address feminist inspired theory and fiction, technology-driven emancipation and discursiveness of space.
They are the founders of YOUNG GIRL READING GROUP (2013), a project which examines the relationships between reading, affect, distraction, togetherness and disunity, bodily and virtual presence, live action, documentation, self and environment. They have previously exhibited at Palais de Tokyo (Paris), MMOMA (Moscow), ICA (London), HKW (Berlin), Spazio Maiocchi (Milan), Art in General (New York), CAC (Vilnius), Kunsthalle Basel, Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen (Düsseldorf), Museum of Modern Art (Warsaw), Berlin Biennale 9, Le Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris among others. Upcoming exhibitions of the duo include solo exhibitions at FUTURA, Prague and as part of horizontal vertigo at Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin/Düsseldorf. Gawęda and Kulbokaitė are currently on Triangle France residency in Marseille.
