I am Zofia nierodzinska for the most of my day, however, sometimes I take a proud figuration of the Femo energeticus – Sofi da East, the Master in Eastern Energy, graduate from the Virtual Feminist University, proprietor of the Advanced Certificate in Self-Photosynthesis, experienced producer and a figuration of Zoe.

Since February 2018 a romantic relation with the loveliest water creature transformed me into mermaid: https://mermaidsyrenki.org

I am recently based in Poznan, where I am a deputy director of the Arsenal Municipal Gallery.

…and an activist, in Berlin member of the group Ciocia Basia.
