Presented with the generous support of The National Science Centre, Poland


Son of a forester and a nurse, molded from two opposite traits. He was a boxer, sculptor, actor, painter, played drums, founded the first local councils and youth parliaments in Poland and Ukraine, co-organized the first concerts of Wielka Orkiestra Swiatecznej Pomocy Foundation, was president of the Academic Sports Club at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. As well he has ceased to be a patriot, a Catholic and an artist. In addition, people have discouraged him, so he has ceased to be a man; he is simply a performative animal immunized by the vaccine of absurd, distance, and enthusiasm. His work is a shaky idiom. It exudes a dose of emotions. It entertains, scares, surprises but is never boring.

Author of more than 200 performances, actions, happenings and video works presented around the world.
