Brokat Films are the painter and self-proclaimed star,
and the performer/video artist Joanna Pawlowska.
Artists are working in the fields of digital art, new media art and performance art.
Duo is exploring the relationship between text, digital representation and visual art,
researching dynamics between gender presentation and aspects of human biology in the digital world.
Equipped with cameras, 3D programs and glitter, artists annex DIY aesthetics, clichés and narrations present
in the culture of the Internet. They create videos, animations and performances, exploring imagery of the early internet
and conventions such as cooking shows, make-up video blogs or how-to sessions.
In 2021 they created a computer game called Planet Brokat and together with the video work and installation,
artworks were presented at Kling og Bang.
A group exhibition showing a series of works inspired by feminist science fiction was titled
“Yes, a falling tree makes a sound (and it has a lot to say)”.
Joanna is a co-curator of the Hamraborg Festival in Kópavogur and a member of the Midpunkt art space team (2020-2022).
Sasa lives in Łódź, Poland where she has her studio, two parrots and art practice.
The duo is currently working on a new, metaverse-inspired project
about horses and love.
