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.

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]
