Milena Michalski is Artist in Residence associated with ‘Art and Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community’, an AHRC-funded, inter-disciplinary, collaborative project bringing together academics and artists from King’s College London, the LSE and University of the Arts London. Concurrently, Milena is also Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College London.
Milena’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, as in her long-term project ‘In/Visible War Crimes Sites’. Milena’s other continuing project, ‘The Optical and its Limits’, plays with questions of abstraction and obscurity, transparency and opacity, and other facets of interpretation and vision.
Milena has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been the recipient of multiple awards and residencies. Her work is held in public and private collections both nationally and internationally.
