Monika Grzymala (Zabrze, Poland) creates temporary interventions in space, which—closely responding to the site at which they are produced—turn the line into a three-dimensional drawing. Her works are based on the fundamental examination of drawing as a medium as well as the medium of paper. In order to be able to translate the line into sculpture, the artist appropriated the Washi technique of making paper by hand. The drawing in these new works is the relief-like, heavily textured paper itself.

The sculptural drawing the installation artist has made for the Collector’s Edition is, next to the photographs, objects, and paintings in our program, a special object. The delicate work on paper is made of bast bark from the Asian mulberry tree, so-called kozo, and of abaca, the fibre a tropical banana plant. Crossing lines accentuate the organic structure of the natural white rag paper, and, like a sublime relief, span a space that is open to all sides and goes beyond the edge of the image following five different principles of image. At the same time each these meticulously executed, handmade pieces rests harmoniously inside the closed form of the square format. [Hatje Cantz]
