I am a visual artist born in Poland, living and working in London. I work across various media including sculpture, performative gestures and video, site specific installations and drawing. My work refers to mundane everyday experiences and surroundings and it often addresses my own fears and anxieties related to social expectations, womanhood and failure. I am interested in the relationship between humans and non-humans and fascinated by the absurd. I find inspiration in situations or objects that are bizarre, curious and out of place. In my most recent work I aim to use absurdity as a tool to draw attention to what may be hidden behind the banal.

Currently I am in the final stages of practice-led PhD at the Slade School of Fine Art. I graduated from Fine Art Sculpture at the Slade (2012 MA) and Wimbledon College of Art (2010 BA) and History of Art, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland (1999 MA). Selected exhibitions: Claw, Goethe Institute, Kraków, Poland (2022); …you ate three hundred devils, Władysław Hasior Gallery, Tatra Museum, Zakopane, Poland (2022); Melancholia, Freud Museum, London (2020); Matter of the Anthropocene, Centrala Gallery, Birmingham (2020); Simple Gestures, BWA Katowice, Poland (2020); Handiwork, Władysław Hasior Gallery, Zakopane, Poland (2019); Near Thing, APT Gallery, London (2018). Residencies include: Tatra Museum, Zakopane, Poland (2019), Grymsdyke Farm, Buckinghamshire (2019); Grizedale Arts Artist Re-orientation, Lawson Park, Cumbria (2013); In 2015 I curated Karen Guthrie and Grizedale Arts project House of Ferment for ArtBoom Festival, Kraków, Poland. In 2022 I was a recipient of Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize for student entry, the exhibition tours nationally till  March 2023.
