Posing questions rather than delivering answers, Hołubowska views their art as a form of activism. Using sounds as their personal form of queer activism, the artist has dedicated themselves to marginalised bodies, creating a space for non-normative gender expressions and sexualities. Looking to create a platform for queer, femme, non-binary and trans voices to be heard, Hołubowska founded Sounds Queer? in 2015. They have also participated in the Intermission album, organised by the Unsound Festival, which is officially selling their vinyl starting today.
Navigating the contradictions and contrasts in their work, Hołubowska fluctuates between minimal darkwave, experimental interpretation of Eastern European traditional music, noise soundscapes, and dark techno. Working to challenge a traditional discourse of Polish culture that queer people don’t exist in, the Polish artist’s non-binary synth looks at the cracks in the narrative, re-imagining a new past.
