Monika Grzymala’s installations function somewhere between an architectural intervention and immense line drawings. Monika Grzymala draws in three dimensions, creating lines with unconventional materials such as adhesive tape, lead wire and branches.
Barely anchored to the walls, these energetic forms leap into the gallery space, where they interweave to create what she calls “an architectural intervention”.
The frenetic nature of her installations is hardly what one would expect from the laid-back artist who is a DJ in her spare time. “I think these are the moments when everyone realizes I exist”, she says. “I’m here, I’m alive, I’m part of that world.” Last year, her drawings at Marfa, Texas (see Issue 8) were made from brightly colored branches; in 2000 she drew on a skating rink (see left), working her lines beneath 10 layers of ice; and her current series of installations, each inspired by London’s skyline, are part of the Hayward Gallery’s touring exhibition The End of the Line: Attitudes in Drawing.
