Artistic statement

 My artistic practice is mostly based on my past and personal experiences; these are the entities I can grasp, trust and work with. Those entities I try to connect with now and sometimes future. Throughout my life, I met a lot of violence in different ways - from physical and mental violence to the representation of violence in the form of art and amusement.  Besides that, there was a power issue I faced when I resisted some social institutions. Those are the main topics I work with. I'm trying to find ways to turn violence into something positive and find ways to enjoy having power without intention to use it for the harm of others. I explore intense but in a way, pleasureful movement, inspired by fighting and mosh pit which I then combine with softness and slow-motion. Besides that, I like to work with text as a tool mostly to deliver something direct and clear.

 

 Another of my fascinations is technology and the way how it changes human lives and bodies. I see technology as a tool to modify our reality, create and explore others,  imaginative and virtual realities. I often feel more attracted to those realities than the one around me.
