Belinda Kochanowska is an emerging photo media artist based in Brisbane, Australia. Under the mentorship of the Queensland Centre for Photography, Kochanowska’s practice frequently explores issues of memory, identity and physicality. She has exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions in Australia. Kochanowska also works as the Executive Officer for the Queensland Centre for Photography.
In the series My Flesh is Your Flesh, Kochanowska uses an intuitive and self-reflexive process of photo-collage to express her psychological, spiritual and physical experience of pregnancy and motherhood.
Kochanowska draws from medical, botanical and natural history illustration to construct works teaming with fleshy distortions, flora, fauna and fantastical locations. Alternative mythologies are presented that are at once joyous, surreal, organic and deformed, blossoming with life yet also brimming with a haunting disquiet.
