Young female artist based in Warsaw

Graduate of the Studio of Spatial Activities by Mirosław Bałka at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2018), student of Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig (DAAD scholarship for 2019/20), guest by Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin at the HFBK in Hamburg (2017/18). I also hold a degree in the cultural studies from the University of Warsaw (2015).

My main focus is mechanisms of control and processes influencing and exploiting an individual. I use a poetic visual language to analyse restrictive rules established within intimate relationships, communities, states, or companies, and towards the natural environment.

I exhibited in MAXXI - National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome (2021), Wschód Gallery in Warsaw (2020), Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, Starak Family Foundation in Warsaw (2019), Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Fondation Hippocrène in Paris (2018), Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw (2017 - laureate of the Hestia Artistic Journey Competition).

I was a resident of AiR Futura, Prague (2020) and the Artist Development Programme at EIB Institute, Luxembourg (2021).

Works of mine are in Fondazione in Between Art Film by Beatrice Bulgari, Ergo Hestia Group and European Investment Bank collections, as well as in private ones.
