             I was born in 1987, in Poland. I live in Warsaw. The essence of my artistic practice is working at the intersections of various media and breaking their structures. I use performance, photography, video, installation and research. In my work I often ferer to the figure of a craftsman as redifined by the Enlightenment.

Even if the outcome is something else, I usually start from objects, their physical presence, and the ways they can be represented. Recognizing the objects and the states they provoke results in a suspension of their status. The activity leading to the creation of a particular work concentrates on the conversion of static media into performative ones.

{I am interested in the political and critical aspect of art, which I understand as a declaration of one's attitude, not just as an artist, but also as a person. Although the practices of the critical artists of the 1990s have exhausted their possibilities, the potential of contestation and destabilization of reality through art remains unexhausted.}

I locate my art practice in different worlds like an island. This kind of cosmopolitan existence is of more interest to me than the idea of the globe. The local/global opposition is too close to sociology and prevents one from focusing on the geography of various phenomena itself.

I consciously draw from different aesthetics as I do not want to get attached to a single one. The untamed, unfamiliar – borrowed for the sake of particular statements – is treated as a means of expression. Aesthetization is a political tool, because it enables the mobilization of far more unconscious or repressed contents and has a greater potential of activizing the spectator than an ostentatious construction of a political language as such.
