"I’ve always had a fascination for the psychological aspects of life, the reason behind every deed, the definition of the truth. Both in my private and professional life I constantly analyse the border between subjective and objective, individual and collective; illusion and reality”. 

Dellfina is a multimedia artist, a stipendist of the Ministry of Culture and the National Heritage. In her works she explores the innermost areas of human nature, focusing often on sexuality, especially in a context of identity, emotionality and self-acceptance. Very often she uses her own body as a medium.

She also works as a journalist, creative producer, screenwriter and social video director. She often collaborates with various human rights and public interest organisations. To promote sexual health and wellbeing, she co-created femmera.com, first online social networking service for women, focused on exploration and development of their sexuality (closed in 2015). Among the supporters were Betty Dodson and  Cindy Gallop. She also created and hosted well known programs for TV, Radio and the Internet on the subject.

2001-2009 she was working with a Swedish artist, actor and musician Thomas Dellacroix. Combining his interest for history with her fascination with human nature, they created their own utopian world, where they balanced on a thin boarder between reality and illusion. By re-enacting different personalities and historical events they explored subjects like fame, image and originality in context of collective memory and popular culture.

Dellfina lived lived and worked in London, Barcelona, Stockholm, and Paris. Presently she is based in Warsaw.
