The second monograph on the oeuvre of Monika Grzymala
Monika Grzymala (*1970) began her artistic training as a stone sculptor and restorer, after which she studied visual art at the art colleges in Karlsruhe, Kassel, and Hamburg. The Berlin-based installation artist generally describes her work as “spatial drawing” and has presented her works in numerous international group and solo exhibitions, at, among others, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Kunsthalle Hamburg, the Fabrica Brighton, the Albertina in Vienna, and most recently at the Reykjavik Art Museum. Grzymala sees the drawing as thought carried out manually and the physical line poised to come into being, whereby the spatial drawing represents a gesture that plays into the architecture and therefore causes the installation artist’s sculptural mode of thought, her “physical thinking,” to become visible in unique spatial drawings. This monograph shows how impressively this can be experienced.
