She is a multidisciplinary artist from Lodz, Poland. During her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, she created works of video art, printmaking, multimedia installations, performance, and more recently sound art. Her practice deals with concepts of spirituality, feminist art and sound ecology. More recently, she has been interested in combining art with the sciences of anthropology and ethnography. As of 2022, she is one quarter of the Fullness Collective. Recent projects with the collective have been seen at the Musica Privata International Festival, the (Dis)connect Festival at the Art Factory, the Central Textile Museum and the Fab_In sound art festival at the Art Incubator.

A women’s collective juxtaposing seemingly distant artistic practices such as painting and extended performance techniques used in new music. The collective was formed at the Audiosfera Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź and seeks new sound art forms of expression.

In the creative process for the collective, the methodology of work is extremely important. From ideation, exploration and combining selected means to tuning the effect to a specific space. The basic tools are field recording materials, video, drawing, object, dockcam performance, recently voice and also a subtle turn to choreography. The starting point in the problems addressed is Schaefferian thought, including the treatment of objects as equal to instruments. On the other hand, Schafer’s thought of the soundscape as a global composition, abstracting specific threads from it and looking for mutual influences and dependencies between them. The artists build the structures of their performances as broad, meticulously planned narratives, with specific ideas at their core (e.g., the problem of acoustic ecology in times of energy crisis – Pleasure of Items) entwined with tensions and phenomena generated during the process. Hence, the intuition and jitter resulting from the encounters are also important elements of their multimedia expositions.
