"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 analyze the border between subjective and objective, individual and collective, illusion and reality”. 

Dellfina Dellert - is a multimedia artist, recipient of a grant from the Polish Ministry of Culture and the National Heritage. In her works she explores the innermost areas of human nature, focusing often on sexuality, especially in the context of identity, attached emotions, 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 organizations. To promote sexual health and wellbeing, she co-created femmera.com, the 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 internet on the subject.

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

Dellfina has lived and worked in London, Barcelona, Stockholm and Paris. Currently  she is based in Warsaw, Poland her home town.
