Woman with child checking emailArtist, collaborator and researcher based in London. Born during the communist regime in Gdansk, I initially trained as an engineer before studying fine art. These shifting experiences have underscored her interests in performed materiality, embodied cognition and neurodiverse aesthetics.

In my practice, I use multimodal approaches combining sculptural objects with drawing, instructional scores, soundscapes and digital technologies. My participatory installations and projects explore imaginary overlaps, empathetic states, and connections between different bodies and spaces, human and non-human, physical and digital.
