About me

I was born in Poznań, Poland in 1983.

I critically look at the contemporary phenomena of the broadly-understood category of culture. My work often relate to past cultural phenomena. What did not happen in the past, now is being fulfilled in a modified form. In my implementations things that once aroused antipathy are accepted, for example: by gentler, more sophisticated form of presentation.

In 2019 I received PhD in arts from the University of the Arts in Poznań.

I’m a member of ArtCan, an arts organisation which enables artists to sustain their practice.
