Monika Grzymala

Monika Grzymala exhibition and Berg Contemporary

The main theme of Monika Grzymala’s work is the line and drawing in three-dimensional space. The creations are always adapted to the exhibition site, connecting different visible and non-visible aspects.

Exhibition of her work is held in Berg Contemporary in Klapparstígur 16 in Reykjavik.

Monika Grzymala’s work possesses a strong sense of authorship. She is known primarily for creating three-dimensional spatial drawings using industrial tape applied directly into and onto the exhibition space’s architecture. Grzymala therefore animates the exhibition space while simultaneously incorporating it, as well as the viewer who stands inside it, into the work. The space she works with sometimes feels endless, because we sense strongly that her work contains nerves or roots that extend into the walls or even through the architecture itself.
