1974* in Poland / lives and works in Berlin / Zamość

studied at Art Akademie in Lublin/PL, Zürich/CH and Leipzig/D, and finished her MFA for fine art at Art Institut, UMCS (prof. Mikołaj Smoczyński) in Lublin and  HGB / Academy of Visual Arts, HGB (prof. Astrid Klein) in Leipzig, D. Since the 2000’s she has produced social and site-specific sculpture, installations, photographs, videos and performances. In 2009 she started her artist project BEL ETAGE and continue this work annually. Her work examines social, cultural, political, economic and linguistic backgrounds of misunderstandings in the communication within relationships (privately as well as publicly) in our societies. She focused on a discursive practice, which on a visual level can analyze and uncover, shift and maybe overwrite cultural codes and signs. In this relation the artist frequently used “everyday materiality” such as daily newspapers or “ad hoc” press kit.

Her work is shown nationally and internationally and she lives and works in Berlin.
