About me

ANNA (ANIA) DROZD IS A 23-YEAR-OLD POLISH-BASED MULTIDISCIPLINARY PRACTITIONER. HER WORK FOCUSES ON VISUAL AND TEXTUAL STORYTELLING, CONCERNED WITH SOCIAL/ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WITHIN AN EASTERN EUROPEAN CONTEXT. HER THREE MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECTS- PLAY HOUSE ON NEUTRAL GROUNDS (2020), STRANGELANDS (2017-ONGOING), AND LIKE COUNTRY, LIKE LOVE (2021)- HAVE ORIGINATED OUT OF HER RESEARCH AROUND LIMINAL COMMUNITIES, THE PHILOSOPHICAL INQUIRY INTO CONCEPTS ON VIOLENCE, AS WELL AS HER NGO WORK, RELATED TO POLITICAL CONFLICT IN THE EASTERN EUROPEAN REGION. ANIA’S CREATIVE WORK PROCESS INVOLVES ELEMENTS OF PERFORMANCE, CONSTRUCTED NARRATIVE, AND PARTICIPATORY PRACTICE WITH HER FAMILY MEMBERS. HER FORMAL DELIVERY EXPERIMENTS WITH SUPPLEMENTING STILL AND MOVING IMAGE WITH VOICEOVERS AND CREATIVE OR NON-FICTION WRITING TO CREATE GUIDED VIEWING EXPERIENCES. ANIA'S WORK ATTUNES TO THE ETHICAL POSSIBILITY OF DOCU-FICTION PROJECTS TO SERVE AS “SAFE” FINE ART SPACES, SHELTERED AND ABSTRACTED ENOUGH FROM DAILY EXPERIENCE TO GRANT CREATORS, PARTICIPANTS, AND VIEWERS ALIKE, THE ABILITY TO PRODUCTIVELY INTERVENE INTO INDIVIDUAL OR COLLECTIVE IDENTITY.
