My practice engages moving image, performance, sound, installation and textiles and explores the intersection of politics and feelings, tackling perceptibly static subjects such as history, nationalism and power, through affect, desire and collective memory – informed by my own experience as a queer woman and immigrant to the UK from Eastern Europe. I am interested in the capacity of art to move us through our shared vulnerabilities and enable us to problematise how history is written and traditions represented.
I undertook a BA in Photography at Camberwell College of Art, received a MA from the Slade School of Arts, was selected for New Contemporaries in 2017, received A-N Artist Award in 2018 and a Jerwood Award in 2019. My work has been shown at the BALTIC, London Art Night, Detroit Art Week, the Diaspora Pavilion during the 57th Venice Biennale and numerous international film festivals.
For the past two years I have been developing a notion of ‘tender crafts’, which is exploring how craft and tradition can be reimaged through queer, feminist, immigrant subjectivities. This year I will exhibit new work in a touring exhibition, SURVEY II, to Site Gallery, G39 and Jerwood Arts and I just realized an online performance series for Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art (NYC) and the ONE Archives (LA). My work is also currently shown at the ‘ Poganki’ show at Local_30 Gallery, Warsaw.
