I’m a Polish, Montreal-based queer visual artist interested in issues of identity, body, displacement, transmission and construction of memory, and personal narrative. Coming from a background in social documentary, I have recently been transitioning towards more complex approaches that blend reality with fiction and photography with cinema. Currently, I am particularly interested in using subversive strategies like counter-archive and speculative-fiction in order to question the position of the documentarian and the documentary image in the post-truth era. I am committed to cultivating a language of care and fostering community as an integral part of my practice. I hold an MFA in Photography from Concordia University and a BA in Cultural Studies from the University of Warsaw. Over the last four years my work has been exhibited in Canada, UK, Poland, and Germany. My research has been generously supported by the FRQSC scholarship, Roloff Beny Fellowship, Catapult Film Fund, CALQ, and Telefilm Canada. I am currently directing my first feature documentary Nolandia produced by Catbird Productions.
