Female visual artist based in Warsaw.

Graduate of the Studio of Spatial Activities by Mirosław Bałka at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2018), former student of Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at the HBK in Braunschweig (DAAD scholarship for 2019/20), guest by Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin at the HFBK in Hamburg (2017/18).

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

I exhibited with Catinca Tabacaru Gallery at the Goethe Institut in Bucharest (2024), NS-Dokumentazionszentrum in Munich (2023), MOCAK – Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Manifesta 14 Prishtina, eastcontemporary gallery in Milan (2022), Fabbri Schenker Projects in London, MAXXI – National Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome, Center for Contemporary Art Luigi Pecci in Prato (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), and TRAFO Center for Contemporary Art in Szczecin (2016).

Art fairs include NADA Villa Warsaw (2024), Artissima, and Arco Madrid (2021).

I was a resident of Hospitalfield in Scotland (2022), Muzeum Susch in Switzerland, the Artist Development Program at the EIB Institute in Luxembourg (2021), and Futura gallery in Prague (2020, Visegrad Fund). I participated in the Lucy Art Residency public program in Kavala (2022) and in the School of Expressions in PLATO Ostrava (2019).
