Belinda Kochanowska is a photo media artist based in Queensland, Australia. Kochanowska’s practice frequently explores issues of memory, identity and female physicality. She has exhibited in various group and solo exhibitions in Australia and Los Angeles, USA.


Created during the pregnancy of her first child, anatomical and natural history illustrations are manipulated to express her experience of birth. Alternative mythologies result - joyous, surreal, organic and disquieting. Kochanowska’s photocollages represent the sudden and lucid knowledge of ones own mortality, seized at the point of giving life.
