About Brooklyn J. Pakathi.
Brooklyn J. Pakathi (enby) is a media artist with an ongoing studio practice in Vienna. Much of their most recent work concerns itself with the language and materiality of emotion. Sentimental longing, melancholy, and various other configurations of intimacy affirm their practice. The Vienna-based artist constructs objects, images and virtual spaces to connect and abstract the underlying architecture of these profound and complex psychological forces.
Pakathi also works as an independent curator and cultural producer. Their curatorial work is shaped by an interest in decolonial curatorial practices and a search for alternative curatorial strategies that can be used to embed cultural equity. Brooklyn works in actioning cultures of technology, developing inclusive and alternative definitions of the technological and using virtual space to deploy artistic practice and discourse outside of the modern colonial world system.
