Milena Michalski’s visual arts practice engages particularly with place and perception, sight and site, using a range of media including print-making, photography, analogue film, digital video and site-specific installation. Her artwork and academic research complement each other and are often interwoven, playing with questions of abstraction and obscurity, transparency and opacity, and other facets of interpretation and vision.
Milena is Artist in Residence associated with ‘Art and Reconciliation’, a series of AHRC-funded, inter-disciplinary, collaborative projects bringing together academics and artists from King’s College London, the LSE and University of the Arts London and international organisations. Concurrently, she is also Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College London.
Milena has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been the recipient of multiple residencies and awards, the most recent of which are the 2021 Arts Council England DYCP award, the London Creative Network (LCN) / ERDF/ Photofusion 2021 Programme award and the Analogue Photography Grant 2020 (The Richard and Siobhan Coward Foundation). Her work is held in public and private collections both nationally and internationally.
