Emigrating to the United States as a child from a Poland that was in the throes of shedding communism, I have found myself fascinated as an artist with the concepts of language, identity and feelings of "otherness" and belonging.
My work explores infrastructures of identity and language: What aspects of communication translate and what is lost? What is communicated in silence and what goes unsaid? How do we communicate with the body? What happens when words do not exist to name significant identities?
My current project interests include the experience of queer identities in non-western, especially Eastern European, cultures and multi-generational trauma and resiliency as well as otherness and belonging in American culture.
