Young Girl Reading Group started in 2013 initiated by Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė. Since its conception YGRG follows a format of a nomadic event. YGRG readings started with the semiotext(e)-published translation of Tiqqun’s Preliminary Materials for a Theory of a Young-Girl. The polar image of the Young-Girl gives the name to our project and opens up to the problematic networks of ideas to be discussed. YGRG is an artistic strategy fluctuating between the virtual and actual world. With YGRG we investigate the act of reading as an intimate experience, retaining the potentiality to become public performance through the “outlouding” of words.
YGRG is a platform developed through fascination with reading and sharing text, primarily, interest in language and its multiple forms. We read together pronouncing the words out loud, emphasising the relationship of body to text and the collective body. YGRG is a sonar-social architecture of shared curiosity and synchronicity, it is a live instagram hangout, a self-conscious aesthetic chamber for intimacy and discovery. YGRG addresses feminist inspired theory and fiction, technology-driven emancipation and discursiveness of space.
