Lucyna Kolendo

Lucyna Kolendo (born 1988) is a visual artist living and working in Gdansk, Poland. She uses photography, film, and sound to examine memories evoked by senses and objects. She tries to keep her research open and allows the results of her thoughts to be shaped by the knowledge and experiences gathered throughout the process. She holds an MA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk and spent two years at the University of Arts and Industrial Design in Linz, Austria, where she studied photography.

In 2016, she completed her first long-term photographic project within the Sputnik Mentoring Programme. She was awarded with Hubert Sielecki Prize at the Tricky Women Film Festival in Vienna. Together with Julie Myers (GB) and Bojan Mucko (HR) she developed a project called “Voiceover” as a part of Corners of Europe programme. The joint work was carried out in four different locations in Europe. The culminating performance was based largely on collaboration between artists and residents. Lucyna's art is all about memories and documenting them in an attempt to paint a picture of the present: its places and communities. Currently, she works as an assistant at the Intermedia Faculty of the Gdansk Academy of Fine Arts.
