Kristīne Daukšte

Helen Scott Lidgett Award

Kristīne Daukšte is a contemporary artist graduating from the Art Academy of Latvia. Her artistic practice includes painting, objects, textile sculptures and spatial extensions. Through her work she uses space as an archive and narrator to analyse objects contrary to the bodily experience within it.

Kristīne was selected for the 2021/22 Helen Scott Lidgett Award by a panel including the artist Abbas Zahedi and Paul Bayley (Head of Residencies & Awards, Acme) from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists at Art Academy of Latvia.

Helen Scott Lidgett Award

The Helen Scott Lidgett Award is a partnership between Acme, Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), Art Academy of Latvia and the family of Helen Scott Lidgett. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
