  • This publication offers a definitive, career-spanning exploration of Polish sculptor Monika Sosnowska (born 1972), known for manipulating ordinary forms and spaces into fascinating and often disorienting new configurations. Freed from their original functionality, her architectonic works and environments evoke a moment when, as she puts it, "architectural space begins to take on the characteristics of mental space." Optical illusions, shifts in scale, mazes, and other such techniques that challenge the intellect of the viewer are motifs throughout her oeuvre. Published for an exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum, this volume documents a decade's worth of Sosnowska's objects, installations and exhibitions and features new scholarship by Maria Gough, Adam Szymczyk and Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson. It is the most comprehensive book on the artist in English to date.
