I am a Polish artist living and working in London.
In my practice, I am trying to experiment and achieve learning outcomes from adopting multiple materials and techniques (concrete, plaster, resin, clay, latex, silicone, animal blood, meat, non-narrative video, photography - digital, film, and alternative).
I am engaged in a widely understood nature morte motif. My oldest background before pursuing fine art is in archaeology and the history of art. The mentioned background made me engaged with motifs and roots of Latin culture and myths in general.
Recently I rediscovered clay as a highly meaningful material with a generous content of symbolism. Clay is a truly primordial and living material. In contemporary cultures, there is a functioning archetype of clay as a substitute for living matter,
Concerning my interest in the vanitas and abject motif, I used animal and human blood. Images of flies and worms in some videos work as a symbol of decay and death but with a twist: such as highlighting their contribution to ecological renewal, and as a metaphor for transformation and rebirth. In these works, I tried to emphasize the mortality and the imminent death of living creatures including homo sapiens.
