Meristem focuses on a plant, its anatomy, shape, structure. The plant tissue – merystem has become an object of artistic penetration. The function of the tool, the penetrating needle is taken by the camera lens. A flower, depending on the time of the dead existence and depiction, takes anthropomorphic forms. Meristem shows the richness of existing phenomena, aetiology of the tissue.

I am a professor in The Lodz Film School. In photography I am concerned with visualisation of feminine body, sensuality, eroticism, beauty, ugliness and exclusion. What is essential in my work is the delicate perception of body. Besides her photographic creation I am involved in writing critical literary texts concerning issues of body, obscenity, disability, based on film, photography, advertisements.
