“Kamilė Česnavičiūtė was born in Vilnius, where she was shaped by Waldorf education while gaining strong skills in classical art school. Recently, she developed a more critical attitude towards society and politics. Her series Please Poke the Bear features human-like figures representing all equally, accepting all differences and showing the importance of unity instead of hostility. ‘I preach anti-power. My interests lie in how society is built upon faulty structures, that need to be dismantled and reformed into a better way of living for everyone. Most of the times the system is wrong and not the individual, but yet the individual lets it happen, by being unaware or enabling. Critique on unnecessary functions that create authoritarian hierarchy is an essential part of my work.’⁠”
