An interdisciplinary artist, the author of multimedia works, installations, performances and research projects. She graduated from The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, but studied also at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. She treats art primarily as a social phenomenon. In the Basque Country she decided to realise the project “Panorama” – preparing an audio guide around the most interesting places in San Sebastian. The “geo-biographical” sound map by Walaszek consisted of memories and reflections of the residents of the capital of Gipuzkoa province. The work was complemented witha folder containing photographic documentation and quotes from the interviews conducted by the artist.
