Justyna Górowska is an artist with an extremely expressive attitude. As she says, the most important thing in her work is the stimulus – then comes the medium. Górowska specializes in a number of techniques, such as photography, video, sculpture, installation, site-specific performance art, etc. She is interested in the condition of a human who no longer occupies the central place in the universe, who is not afraid to lose his/her autonomy and be fully immersed in reality.
