CV

Kamila Śladowska (she/her) is a Helsinki based visual artist born in 1996 in Warsaw, who works with various media, focussing on painting. Being raised in anthropocene, she tries to learn about painting from more-than-humans. The artist researches around topics of diversity and cultural anthropology in the context of post-humanism. Her creation is associated with eco-eroticism or eco-feminism. Inspired by hydrofeminism, transhumanism/anarcho-primitivism, Sladowska investigates the relationship of human and more-than-human. In the past years she has been working on interconected immersive painting ecosystems. She believes that regard on colour perception might be a clue to understand homo sapiens as part of evolutionary mechanisms. She makes effort to work with recycled materials or using slow techniques in order to reduce the harmful impact of painting. Her work has been shown in multiple countries in Europe (including for example Biennial of Palermo, STØND LEEG festival in Antwerp, Myymälä2 in Helsinki, Sinfonia Varsovia in Warsaw or In Feminis Veritas in Berlin).
