Monika Sosnowska’s Puts Up a Wall at Kurimanzutto

No contributor

Monika Sosnowska grew up in Poland under the Communist Eastern bloc, where she now lives and works. Her exhibition, “wall,” on view through July 29 at kurimanzutto gallery in Mexico City, explores architecture’s “promise for the future,” in terms of actual use and in relation to changes in our contemporary built environment.

Through distortion and sometimes even destruction, the artist turns apparently used structures from the past, into works of art. The violent acts carried out in creation, paired with the poetry of the outcome, are as surprising as they are enchanting.

Sosnowska also touches upon the assumed practicality of modern architecture, going as far as dividing the gallery with a large wall that becomes a central point of the exhibition (while giving it its name), as sculptures interact around the structure in unexpected ways.
