Capitain Petzel Monika Sosnowska Showcase 1

Monika Sosnowska (b. 1972 in Ryki, Poland) is known for her often site-specific architectural installations created by appropriating construction material to create impactful and elegant sculptures that comment on the post-war architecture of her native Poland. In the Showcase one such sculpture is presented: Gate, created by manipulating an existing structure and through twisting, stretching, and resetting the initial configuration of the model, creating a new object detached from the functionality distinctive of the former gate. This work is representative of how Sosnowska alludes to a specific socio-historical reality, to contradict the rational paradigm of modernism, and to create as a result a beautiful visual puzzle.
