Polish artist Monika Grzymala – Spatial Drawing

Friday, February 26th, 2016
  • 1aGMonika

    ARTIST: Monika Grzymala (Poland) A site-specific work “Raumzeichnung” (outside/inside) over four miles of black and clear tape are given sculptural form, giving the illusion of a 3D structure that stretches from the back of the gallery to the front window. “I describe all of my installations as architectural interventions or spatial drawings, in German Raumzeichnung and in English, Spatial Drawing,” Grzymala explains.The line is one of the most fundamental of shapes when it comes to drawing, perhaps the fundamental—and an exhibition at London’s Lisson Gallery explores this basic construct of art. Called, of course, Line and curated by Drawing Room—a UK-based non-profit gallery dedicated to contemporary drawing—the exhibition explores the work of 15 international artists and their exploration of the line. They include artists like Sol LeWitt, Richard Long, and Tom Marioni.

  • His quotes –

    “Then why do you want to know?”

    Because learning does not consist only of knowing what we must or we can do, but also of knowing what we could do and perhaps should not do.”

    I developed a passion for the Middle Ages the same way some people develop a passion for coconuts.

    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

  • Further, Umberto Eco is an expert on the subject of 007, which adds him to the worldwide group of bondologs (“Bondologists,” Scandinavian expression for an expert in the field of James Bond).

  • Photography of Peng Chun Yen – Afterworld from Taiwan

    Photography – Afterworld by Peng Chun Yen

    Afterworld means the world after death. These series of pictures were all taken inside a small pumping station in Taipei. Inside the station seems very desolate, which is out of tune with the urban cityscape of Taipei. The water stains caused by raindrops appear to create proof of life in the lifeless environment. In this barren landscape located inside a city, it is like walking on the road of the Afterworld, trying to find the next exit to reincarnation.
