Milena Michalski creates work around themes of place and perception, site and sight. She uses translucency, transparency and layering, as well as fragmentation or obscuring of images, to treat issues of representation and abstraction. Milena's practice embraces analogue film, digital video, photography and printmaking, as well as mixed-media installation. Through an emphasis on materiality, she interweaves memory and trace, combining subjective and objective elements and experiences of time and place. Current projects include 'Perspextives', her mixed media form comprising multiple layers of print and perspex.
Milena Michalski is an artist and Visiting Research Fellow at King's College London. In 2014 Milena was awarded the first Chelsea School of Arts Residency and Arts Club Aldeburgh Beach Bursary, and in 2013 the CCW Artist Moving Image Initiative Award. Group shows in 2014 include a film screening as part of the Derek Jarman Retrospective at the National Centre of Contemporary Arts, Moscow and 'Postgraduate Printmaking in London 2014', Clifford Chance, London. Her 2014 solo show 'The Optical and its Limits' took place at The South Lookout, Aldeburgh/Caroline Wiseman Modern & Contemporary.
