    • visual artist, performer. Born in 1993 A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (2018) and the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw (2016). PhD student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk. His artistic practice is the starting point for reflection on the ways of existence. He observes experiences and interpersonal relationships, as well as the way we are perceived by other individuals. His works often refer to the concept of biopower and biopolitics. He is particularly interested in the categories of completeness and incompleteness, their ambivalence and hidden potential. He says about himself that he is an indicator of incompleteness, inconsistent with the norm, because he is Deaf and does not use phonic speech. Through his art, he develops his own communication strategy.
