Born 1980, graduated in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, Poland. She is a painter and performance artist, a process-based rebel. Working in many media she constantly redefines their boundaries; emotions are essential element of her idea of art. One of such projects was the Twelve-month War, realized in 2013. The action explored the issues connected with the place of the artist on the art market and in the circles of cultural institutions, as well as those that searching for space, recognition for her own art, and uncompromising confrontation with the viewer entails.
