A few words about me

Born in Warsaw in 1973, I left 2 weeks before the end of martial law to spend most of my life in Australia. I’ve been living and working in Poland since 2017.

A good portion of my work is site-specific, and includes installations, ephemeral work, wall painting, drawing and printed graphic art. I also work with video and 2D animation.

I am fascinated by human interaction, particularly our personal experience of it, and this is what I tend to focus on in my work.

My performance-based work Homemaker appeared as part of KRAKERS Gallery Weekend in Kraków in 2019.

That same year, I took part in an artist residency at Sesama, Yogyakarta, during which I produced the mural Dancing Men.

My short animated film Reprise appeared in film festivals in New York, Rome, Melbourne and Teplice (2012-3). The film received two awards – Best Production Design and Best Use of Sound, both from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

In 2012 I received a grant from Moreland council in Melbourne for the creation of the site-specific installation Runaway Garden.

Exhibitions I’ve taken part in include Nieobecność , Tytano, Kraków (2018), The Victorian College of the Arts Graduate Certificate Group Show (2016), and The Victorian College of the Arts Drawing Foundations Group Show (2014).

My project Kim Jesteś w Domu?, completed in 2019 as part of the Master of Fine Art (Intermedia) at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, addresses the concept of “home” and investigates ways in which this concept is related to identity. As part of the next phase of my Master’s, I am investigating the influence of bilinguality and multiple “home” cultures on identity.
