According to the definition of narrative identity introduced by Dan P. McAdams, the presenceof an artist in a public space may be perceived through the prism of Heidegger’s “being-in-the-world”. This form of immersion, which is directly connected with the categoryof (phenomenological) experience, lets us read/interpret a precise work in linear terms.Artworks, which are a kind of a self-reflection of an artist, a process of thought which isdedicated to his or her own creative path, are a particular example or form of explicationof narrative identity. As a matter of fact, the aim of this work is to indicate elements andtools which are necessary to form narrative identity. The analysis, based on philosophical knowledge, focuses on a precise example, the album entitled Anima which is a summaryof 20 years of Justyna Steczkowska’s artistic path.
