Ocean is seductive, fire is frightening. Playa del Carmen is a place privileged yet stricken by tourism. Fires are vital to maintaining fully dynamic ecosystems. Ocean is marking the artistic desert.

video mockumentary, 49’
2013 produced by TOUCHfilms & Atlas Sztuki


In this hysterical deadpan pseudo-doc, artist Karolina Bregula constructs a scenario in a fictional Northern European city plagued by mysterious fires throughout its history. As the town’s peculiar inhabitants speculate about the cause of the fires, the way they may be prevented and the strange coincidence of where they occur, a possible conspiracy to destroy local art begins to emerge.

video and photo installation


This is a story about a girl. She wanted to be a mermaid. She packed her five shiny mermaid fins and moved from South Dakota to the Caribbean. From a place without an access to the sea to a place that is fond of sirens. When mermaiding she likes to sing loud. In the end, it’s a story about rock’n’roll, love for the ocean and female adolescent rituals.
