BIO AND CV

 

BIO

I was born in Bydgoszcz, Poland in 1987. Recently I'm living, working, having fun, wondering and inventing in Helsinki, Finland.

In my work I’ve been moving in the area of expanded printmaking and film.                 

As an artist I position myself in handling simultaneously big size canvases, 16mm films, spatial projections and live cinema performances. I’ve been mostly working with machinery of slide, overhead and various film projectors. Through that optical tools, I'm delivering my print-making actions. I’m fascinated by power of light, analogue technology, relation between camera and subject, distorted images and mesmerizing structures. Me, an artist, I love to stare and I care most about this pure gazing at the world as if I would be using a huge magnifying glass.

My projects are often standing on the borderland of print, theatre and film.
