Recent upheavals and rapid changes in Eastern Europe have clearly left their mark on Monika Sosnowska’s work. The traces of bygone utopias and recent cultural fissures in cities like Warsaw have proven a fertile ground for material from which the sculptor formulates her walk-in installations. The digital photographs and sketches included in this book are a selection of her impressions, ideas and notes which have influenced her spatial compositions. It offers fascinating insight into the way in which the artist perceives her surroundings and conveys that perception in her sculptures.
Monika Sosnowska, was born in Ryki, Poland, in 1972, and studied in Amsterdam at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten. Since then she has been living in Warsaw. Her work has been exhibited at major international institutions, notably in the Polish pavilion at Biennale Venice in the summer of 2007.
