Contextual artist. She bases her work strategy on the exchange of heat. She carefully observes the “thermodynamic” processes taking place in people’s relationships to places, objects or other people (including non-human agents). She is interested in what happens at the crossroads of concepts and meanings. In her artistic practise, she operates a wide formal spectrum. The choice of medium always results from the context and concept of action. For Natalia the creative process is equally important as making the exhibition user-friendly. She is the co-founder and curator of Galeria Miłość (EN: Love Gallery).

Born in Lublin in 1985. She studied at the University of Arts in Poznan (master’s degree in graphic design, in 2010). She defended her Ph. D thesis at the University Nicolaus Copernicus in Toruń in the field of Fine Arts (2018) prepared under the guidance of Elżbieta Jabłońska. She lives and works in Toruń.
