For Raumzeichnung – or Drawings in Space – Monika Grzymala will take over and re-articulate the entire space with a new installation in three different shades of black. What begins as a drawing in tape will depart from the gallery walls to interact with the unique environment. Grzymala will focus primarily on the load bearing architectural formation at the centre of the gallery and then extend the work out to play with the arches that radiate from it and draw in the rest of the space as though suggesting an orbit around this central mass.

While her focus is largely abstract, the black lines of this installation cannot help but hold subtle resonance with the complex nets of architectural blueprints and design drawings. As with her commission for FRAC Lorraine in France the lines that leave the wall begin to suggest structures – going beyond mere architectural intervention to actually enclose and articulate space.

Grzymala describes her installations in conventional units, but always considers the three dimensional drawings first in relation to the body. This humanising element to the work also relates back to the notion of architecture as a response to human proportions. There is a performative, process related element to the installation of the work but even after completion it continues to perform: As an ephemeral installation the work gradually succumbs to the will of gravity, its deterioration echoing humanity like some gigantic vanitas.
