.
I am a woman basically since birth...
I am a reflection in the space of infinity
double countenance
diversity and extremes
being lost and the initial force
breath and the suspension of it
transition, bridge, gate
I am the unnamed
both the spoken and the only thought-of word
I am the road to nowhere
the limit and timelessness
continuous flow
soft, warm dampness
a slit in the black rock
a danger not only to myself
thought and energy
creating over and over again
free will without borders
imagination constructing a form
I give life and I take it
I open and I close, surrendering myself to
I am you and everyone else
I lie and do not know where I am
I feel the presence more than ever
the sleep is now
traces of the past overlaying the present
persistently remind about themselves
everything reflects in the water
moves backward
is seeing opposite than before
behind the glass, in a mirror image
I am the inconceivable vision
a tear, sadness and the abyss
a laugh, scream and the ecstasy­
silence, depth and the ocean

I am engaged in intermedia artistic activities.

Through the body which is a matrix, a filter and a vehicle, I find my language of expression. I reach to the hidden experiences and subtle areas of the soul. Emotions and thoughts release breath and movement. Reactions, their observation, and finding perceptions – they are a treasury for the registration of reflexes, traces of presence or lack thereof. The body suggests the selection of tools. Fragments of texts and personal poetry are an important part of creation. Flexible flow of impressions and expressions allows me to work with various media – both traditional, as well as new.
I employ video art, installation, live visuals, performance, site specific. I often work in Nature and draw from it.

Since 2011, I have focused on group collaboration, created in a very specific way. My research has revolved around finding ART SYNERGY. The communication support system between Intermedia Art and Integrated Media Performance.

For many years, I develop in raising the awareness of the body by regular practice and participating in workshops of: Modern Jazz, dance improvisation, Contact Improvisation, Butoh Dance, 5Rhythms, performing activities, Hatha Yoga, work with breath and voice.

In 2013 I graduated from the Inter-University Multimedia Program at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw.

In 2011 I completed a Postgraduate Pedagogy at Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. The same year I successfully defended PhD thesis entitled THE FLOW at the Faculty of Media Art and Stage Design of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.

In 2006 I began working for the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, where I currently reside at the Faculty of Media Art in the Intermedia Communication Studio.

I studied at the Faculty of Graphic Arts of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. In 2004 I obtained a MA entitled diamond with honors at Prof. Rafał Strent’s Graphic Art Studio.
