Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, at the Faculty of Painting, Graphic Design and Sculpture. In 1984, she obtained an MA with distinction in Drawing. Her work combines art and scientific study, which culminates in unique projects applying a variety of media: installation, photography, design, drawing, sound installation and architecture. The artist’s observations of nature are reflected in the way she introduces light into her work. Her installations in public spaces are monumental, always closely related to the structure of architecture. The artist’s most recent projects explore how sound moves through the different membranes of architectural spaces. Through contiguous compositions she reveals the many facets hidden in buildings.
