Monika Sosnowska: "Fatigue"

Exhibition at Kunstraum Dornbirn

Exhibition duration: June 17 to October 30, 2022

Opening
Thursday, June 16, 2022 at 7 p.m.

Monika Sosnowska's expansive installations seem familiar and yet alien. Beam profiles, rebars, pipes, or steel scaffolding are no more than dysfunctional representatives of themselves. The artist appropriates the characteristics of the materials by bending, tugging, stretching, and breaking them after the construction elements have been manufactured, thus reducing their function to absurdity. The artistic appropriation strategy reflects Sosnowska's preoccupation with architecture and its constituent elements.

Buildings are understood as places of experience, places of memory-with all their historical, political, psychological, and anthropological markings inflicted on architecture over time.

A catalog accompanying the exhibition will be published in the summer of 2022.
