Duo Ewelina Aleksandrowicz and Andrzej Wojtas (Tikul & Jendrek), known collectively as Pussykrew, make art that eludes convention and merges the erotic and the ethereal with exquisite finesse. Using both visual and sonic media, the two artists marry the maximalist sensations of glitch with minimalist destructiveness to give performances that are beyond experimental. They are Berlin based artists who are collaboratively working within the area of new media. Their interdisciplinary practices range from audio-visual performance, live coding, multimedia installations to sound experiments, sensor based technologies and DIY electronics.
During their production of live visuals, video installations and videoclips they have collaborated with Leila, Darkstar (WARP Records) HTRK (Work, work, work Tour 2011 – Ghostly International), Raime (Blackest Ever Black) and Oni Ayhun amongst others.
In 2010 they’ve started their audio-visual noise project – Domestic Violence, which merges field recordings, live coding and audio-responsive glitches, by using self-made interfaces, controllers and patches. Domestic Violence performed in Finland, Germany, UK, Italy and Poland.
work by Tikul & Jendre has been presented at digital arts and video festivals around the world. They are constantly trying to challenge the viewer, through exploration of identity / queerness of human body / architectural objects and their transformations, synthetic-organic textures, glitch aesthetics, physicality of image and sound.Their works are attempting to bend the perception of time – intensify the senses and reactivate the dismissed areas of psyche.
