Ewa Justka (PL/UK)
Ewa Justka is a polish electronic noise artist, self taught instrument builder and electronics teacher based in London. Ewa’s amplified performances mix her noise sensibilities with stripped back crunched beats and illuminated stroboscopic light bulbs. Ewa’s main field of research is based on exploration of materiality of objects, vibrant, ontological systems (human bodies, plant bodies, electronic circuits: varied range of micro and macro environments and relations between them) and an investigation of modes of quasi-direct perception through noise performance actions, interactive installation, DIY electronics, hardware hacking, plant-molesting, breaking, deconstructing and collaborating. In her artistic work Ewa attempts to explore the concept of materiality of the hidden. Ewa currently studies MA Computational Arts at Goldsmiths College, and has performed and led workshops at festivals and venues including Loop Festival, Sonic Acts Academy, Supernormal Festival, Club Transmediale, STEIM, Colour out of Space, Beam Festival, Unconscious Archives and Cafe Oto. Ewa is a recipient of the Oram Award 2017 presented by The New BBC Radiophonic Workshop and the PRS Foundation.
