Irmina Rusicka (b. 1990) is a visual artist, author of installations, videos and research works. She graduated in psychology and art history from the University of Wrocław within the framework of Interdisciplinary Individual Studies in the Humanities (2014) and in Media Art from the Wrocław Academy of Fine Arts (diploma with honours, 2017). She took part in inter-university exchange, studying Media Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in the studio of Krzysztof Wodiczko and Prof. Grzegorz Kowalski (2016–17). Her works combine social and political criticism with the existential dimension. Gallows humour and being pissed off are also palpable in her art. Rusicka lives in Warsaw and works at the Szczecin Academy of the Arts.
