Catag is AJ Polonia´s intense cooperation with Visual Artist Uli Sigg
Catag’s body of work is diverse and combines new technologies with traditional media such as painting, performance, and site-specific installation. Their work is based on digital paintings, animated web-art, site-specific installations, and live performances. They use street art and electronic art to create video productions, live VJ sets, audiovisual concerts, and installations that are unique and captivating.
Catag’s art seeks to contribute to changing life in cities and inspire viewers to open up to new possibilities. Their virtual graffiti and animations are condensed like signs, sometimes funny to whimsical, sometimes enigmatic, but always fleeting and eventful. They take virtual possession of urban spaces, using them for aesthetic guerrilla actions, and support other artists, musicians, and authors in their performances.
