Un oeil nouveau sur l'art contemporain
Dans la série, « Le monde de l'art selon E.T ».18 mars 2014, E.T. rencontre Stairway sculpture de Monika Sosnowska à la galerie Petzel et Capitain à Berlin.
I regret that I was not allowed to film inside the gallery, it has " no interest for the artist" Monika Sosnowska , according to the words of the representatives of Capitain Petzel Gallery.
I took pictures through the double-glazed window and I apologize to the artist for the blurred aspect of her work
Monika Sosnowska (born 1972 in Ryki, Poland) studied at the Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan (1993--1998), and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (1999--2000. In 2003 she received the Bâloise Prize at Art Basel as well as the Polityka's Passport award given by Poland's most prestigious weekly. (Wikipedia)
Monika Sosnowska was inspired by an emergency staircase, built in 1971 at 'The Museum of History of Tel Aviv', which she discovered during a residency in Israel in 2008. She documented the stairwell with a photograph, just before its deconstruction. This image creates the point of departure for her own fabricated interpretation of the found architectural object by removing it from its original functionality through dismantling, twisting and squeezing the main elements. By changing the stairway's direction Sosnowska challenges our perception. She captures the site, abstracts and freezes the space and creates an optical illusion leading our gaze upwards the spiral.
