Maria Elena Bonet
Maria Elena Bonet was born in Minsk, Belarus and graduated from the Belarusian State Academy of Art in 2009. Since 2021, she is based in Poland where she received a Gaude Polonia scholarship of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland. She has been focused on black and white film photography and used alternative photographic methods such as gum bichromate, tintype, cyanotype, and classical gelatine-silver photography. In the Project Room, she presented a series of photographs and two short videos.
All that we has
Antonina Konopelska is a graduate of prof. Grzegorz Kowalski’s Audiovisual Space Studio "Kowalnia" at Media Art Faculty at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Modern Language Studies at the University of Warsaw. She defended her doctoral dissertation at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. She presented her works during numerous solo shows and group exhibitions. She is a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw. The project she presented at the Ujazdowski Castle involved inviting Lena, who has dissociative identity disorder (DID). The artist presented a photo portrait of all Lena's identities. The exhibition was mounted in collaboration with American costume designer Julie Weiss.
Paweł Łubkowski is a painter, photographer, author of objects and installations. He studied painting in the Department of the Arts of the Institute of Visual Arts of the University of Zielona Góra and Digital Image Creative Processing at the Pedagogical University in Cracow. In his work, Łubkowski draws on his own memory. He searches for the traces we leave, which testify to our presence.
Malwina Migacz graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. She works with diverse media such as textiles, cement, powdered metals, plaster, ash, video, 3D animation, painting, or photography. She has also been active in the fields of performance art and sound art which often combine with her installations, producing an effect of dissonance, misunderstanding, and lack of logic which then becomes a state of derealization. As part of the exhibition in the Project Room, she created a multimedia installation.
