Mal is a visual artist from Poland based in London, who uses digital manipulation to project her inner self through the context of female representation in art. She puts her trust in her feminine intuition by first letting herself to dive into three dimensional projections of the lucid dreaming states and then transforming the female element of the messages acquired from these dream-like journeys into two-dimensional self-portrait prints. In her presentations, the static nature of photography is further repressed to finally become a monolith – a silently screaming entity – endowed by great wisdom and sensibility but unable to speak or move. In the presented series of photographs called “Closer than Ever” Mal depict a woman and man, and their struggle for identity, that seems to fade in face of prolonged isolation caused by Covid-19 lockdowns.
