Anna Jochymek’s artistic work is driven by a willingness to understand the complexities of today’s world with her artistic focus probing the pervasive impact of social exclusion and marginalization.
Her research led to developing the concept titled ‘Space of Fear,’ which delved into the fragility and amenability of contemporary society when left critically unchecked, with widespread repercussions on current art and social narration.
She works at the intersection of visual art performance, digital media experimentation and site-specific interventions.
She holds a PhD from the University of Fine Arts in Poznan, PL and she held a position of Honorary Research Associate at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, UK.
In 2019 she won ‘The Digital Diaspora’ open call for the innovative project ‘Crowd Crystal’ which contributed to the subject of Central and Eastern European identity. She has been an Artist-In-Residence at the Geumcheon Art Factory, Seoul and the Performance Space Studio, London, UK and took part in exhibitions worldwide including: ‘Crowd Crysal,’ Watermans Art Centre, London (2021), ‘Her Own Way. Female Artists and the Moving Image in Art in Poland: From 1970s to the Present,’ Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, Tokyo (2019), ‘The Digital Diaspora,’ Centrala Space, Birmingham (2019), ‘Sharing Borders,’ The Slade Research Center, Slade School of Fine Art (UCL), London (2019).
