She has participated in several performance art festivals in Poland and abroad.

In her work Kalwajtys deals with performance ,video performance and object-installations.

Simultaneously, Kalwajtys works on a project beyond her discipline and undertakes curatorial tasks within the domain of performative phenomena.She states that "performance art questions certain aspects of the human condition in contemporary culture and the meaning of these factors in the construction of identity and of social transgression. I focus on the limitations of humanity by investigating the topics of social cannibalism, mutual social elimination, the exclusion of weaker individuals, repression, and isolation".

Anna Kalwajtys’ participation at Guangzhou Live is generously supported by the city of Gdansk, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the consulate general of Poland in Guangzhou.
