Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė are naturally collaborative. Their work initially manifested as Young Girl Reading Group a serial performative project and a fragmented collection of texts engaged with feminisms and its weavings into the queer and minority positions and the more-than-human. The texts were read out loud and the performances were distributed online or recorded using mobile phones.
Their early interest in amalgamating the organic with technology continues in this series of new works on canvas, in which they collaborate with artificial intelligence, breeding images using Generative Adversarial Networks. These images are used to make paintings that reference depictions of nature in the Western painting tradition, which are applied to the canvas through the layering of gesso. The paintings respond to the sentimentality of artificially bucolic pictures and are a reflection on the historical representation and framing of the landscape as well as the algorithmic systems that increasingly structure our understanding of the world surrounding us.
