Monika Sosnowska
Artist

Monika Sosnowska is a Polish born artist.

Sosnowska’s sculptural language emerges from a process of experimentation and the deft appropriation of core materials that are closely associated with construction, such as concrete, steel beams, pipes and reinforcing rods. These elements, that occur at architecture’s fringes and under the skin of a building to provide support and rigidity, are manipulated and warped by Sosnowska, taking on an independence in which their former functionality is implied yet defunct. In this way, the works are precisely composed citations that speak directly to the viewer’s preconceptions, by drawing upon both the artist’s personal, and our collective, experience of the built environment as a site of memory that is adept at conveying both political and psychological significance.

Her international exhibition roster is extensive and includes shows at South London Gallery, London, Grieder Contemporary, Küsnacht Zurich, Charlottenborg Museum, Copenhagen, Kiasma Museum, Helsinki, Witte de With, Rotterdam, Den Haag Sculptuur, The Hague, The Modern Institute, Glasgow, Stella Lohaus Gallery, Antwerp, Serpentine Gallery, London, European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Frankfurt, and many others, including Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York, Walker Art Center, and multiple years at the Venice Biennale.

She lives and works in Warsaw.

  • Anu Põder: Space for My Body
    Jan 3 – Jun 30, 2024
    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland
    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)
