Brodette is a textile artist based in Brussels. She reclaims embroidery, a hobby that has long been considered the ultimate feminine domestic activity, by using it as a medium for socio-political claims.

Brodette completed a series of embroideries on police brutality, which has become widespread, normalised and trivialised since the yellow vests protests in France. Her work is inspired by the numerous pictures found in media. The slowness of the act of stitching and its meticulousness inscribe these images in a new temporality, away from the media pressure, and in a new relationship to violence.

In a different way, Brodette uses the medium and aesthetic of the patch to stitch slogans that are sometimes humorous, sometimes scathing. The softness of the fabric and bright colours contrast with the strength of the messages.

Brodette studied textile arts at the Angers School of Arts and Design as well as at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. She participated to a number of residences and her work is mainly exhibited in Belgium and in France.
