  • Weronika Wysocka

    Visual artist, creates films, installations and virtual projects. In her works, she refers to different aspects of human imprints, such as the progress of technology and its impact on entities and nature. An important role in the artist’s works is played by the reflection on the mental condition of man. Her works reveal the amplitudes of the morphing emotionality resulting from the connection of the real and interface worlds.

In 2019 she lead the NARRATION STRATEGIES workshop at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Curator of online exhibition Scrolling the System for Zachęta – National Art Gallery.
