Born in 1981.
Based in Katowice.
Lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice.
PhD, Department of Sculpture and Spatial Activities at the Art University in Poznan.
Represented by Rodríguez Gallery.

 

I focus on the codependence of human actions and nature, space modifications, and examining the properties of the matter. In my journeys I seek inaccessible places which may become the background for my activities. I create sculptures, installations and photographs. I appropriate situations of high artistic value for my own purposes. My artworks are founded on in-depth observation, detailed examination of hardly noticeable processes, and awareness of the performed gesture.
