The video moves around the concept of identity. What is interesting for Bożna is not a process of self-discovery, but the essence of continuous self-creation. Identity is therefore understood as the subject of a complex process of shaping, which characteristic becomes variability and ability to adapt. The use of ephemeral video frames is an attempt to capture something immutable and permanent, which the eye of the beholder can find in careful observation of a given moment.
Visual artist, performer and choreographer. Currently studying at the Faculty of Media Arts at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.
