"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 working with various media including photography, photomontage, collage, installation, encaustic medium, performance, video and lenticular. In her works she explores the innermost areas of human nature (the collective unconscious, archetypes, individuation process), focusing often on sexuality, especially in a context of identity, emotionality and self-awareness. She is interested in registering emotional and transgressive processes as well as various forms of self-expression. Very often she uses her own body as a medium.

She is a scholar of the Ministry of Culture and the National Heritage. Her works were shown on over 50 international exhibitions in museums and galleries as well as art fairs, and festivals, both in Europe and overseas. She often collaborates with various human rights and public interest organisations (e.g. Amnesty International, Red Cross, KPH, WOŚP). She also works as a journalist, photographer, creative producer, screenwriter, stylist, and social video director. She is also a qualified fashion designer (Studio Sztuki, Warsaw), and actress (Method Acting Centre, Paris). She was a co-creator of femmera.com, first online social networking service for women, focused on exploration and development of their sexuality (closed in 2015).

Between 2001 and 2009 she's been working together with a Swedish artist, actor and singer Thomas Dellacroix. Their joint projects dealt with subjects like fame, image and originality in a context of collective memory and popular culture. By re-enacting different personalities and historical events they balanced on the thin border between reality and illusion. 

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

Fun facts: (1) D&D created fantasy characters: Bambi de Sade & Tommy Dollar, who had a music band called Dejavu, singing english adaptation of Serge Gainsbourg songs. Songs were produced (for real) by an A-list, world famous producer, who prefers to stay anonymous. They were also performing live on various venues. (2) Dellfina was a model for Ellen von Unwerth (3) Large format self-portraits of Dellfina were used as a sole stage sets for the opera Don Giovanni, Folk Operan production, Stockholm. (4) Dellfina was an elite gymnast performing artistic gymnastics and acrobatic gymnastics. Her career ended with a serious back injury. That gave her space to develop in other directions.
