About me

Master of Arts, she completed her MA at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and her BA at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Toruń. In 2016, she studied at the Department of Film and Photography of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan. Her works have been displayed on exhibitions and festivals in Poland and abroad – among other places, in Athens, Romania, and Polish Culture Institute in Minsk. In 2015, she took part in Warsaw under Construction festival, and in 2016 her video won her the main award of an international students’ art festival in Wozownia Art Gallery in Torun. The films, photographs, and installations that she creates are postconceptual creations. In her minimalistic pieces – delicate deconstructions of spaces – she asks questions about identity, both her own as well as a collective one.
