Cahiers d’Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition of the work of Monika Sosnowska. Focusing on paper models the artist has created since 2008 as well as models produced during a three-month residency at the Atelier Calder in Saché. The exhibition follows the publication of a special portfolio of Sosnowska’s models in the revue Cahiers d’Art N°1, 2015 Calder en France.

About

Sosnowska has created a series of sophisticated paper models inspired by found architectural elements that are presented in the works as distorted, detached from their common utility. 

In addition to the paper maquettes, Sosnowska has created a special edition for Cahiers d’Art, consisting of lamps based on Portuguese designs from the 1970s. The original lamps were spray-painted white so as to give off an elegant diffused light. The artist has painted her lamps roughly, with a brush and white enamel paint.

In addition to the exhibition, a portfolio of the artist’s work is featured in the revue Cahiers d’Art No 1, 2015 Calder in France following her recent residency at the Atelier Calder in Saché.

Monika Sosnowska was born in Poland in 1972 and currently lives and works in Warsaw. She studied at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam and the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan. In 2007 she represented Poland at the 52nd International Venice Biennale. Major solo exhibitions for Sosnowska have included “Market,” Perez Art Museum, Miami, Florida (2013); Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado (2013); “Regional Modernities,” Australian Center for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2013); Modern Institute, Glasgow, Scotland (2012); K21 Standehaus, Dusseldorf, Germany (2011); “The Staircase/Die Treppe, 2010,” Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Herzliya, Israel (2010); Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Vaduz, Lichtenstein (2007); and the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2006).
