Artist Statement

The Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Lliosa once said: „Life is a shitstorm, in which art is our only umbrella.” I want to introduce this umbrella into the space of our everyday life.
I am an artist, translator and poet. I am running different artistic projects. Their various concepts rely on the basic idea: In a world ruled by shopping centres I fight for space for art in our everyday life. The battle is already lost, because art doesn't adhere to the requirements of the market. However, it does not mean for me to give up so easily. As a Polish I am a representative of a nation that in the past fought hoplessly for things it believed in. So do I.
