Dorota Czerner was born in 1966 in Wrocław, Poland, and completed her studies in Philosophy and Logic at the University of Paris IV, la Sorbonne. She is a writer, published poet, and editor of the Open Space magazine, as well as a collaborator on many projects involving video, music, and mixed media performances. She has spent 15 years in Paris and currently resides in New York. Though most of her recent work has been in English, the artist keeps in close touch with her mother tongue thanks to the translatory practice. She is currently working on a novel entitled “a place of dunes” which is an experimental prose interweaving the Polish and English languages.
