Dans la série "Le monde de l'art selon E.T.", Monika Sosnowska à la galerie Captain et Petzel à berlin
E.T. , sculpture « sociale » et nomade d'Antoine Mercier a décidé de découvrir sur son E.T. mobile électrique le monde de l'art, collectionneurs, galeries, ateliers d'artiste, monuments, musées et expositions.
Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne and Petzel Gallery, New York opened a joint gallery in Berlin in fall 2008. The gallery, a 1,300 square meter glass-encased modernist building preserved from the Socialist Era, is located in one of the city’s historical landmarks on Karl-Marx-Allee in Berlin-Mitte. The former ‘Kunst im Heim’ gallery of the GDR, is a classic example of East German Modernism, built in 1964 by architects Kaiser and Franek to house a display of fine and applied arts from the countries of the Eastern Block.
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.
Sosnowska lives in Warsaw. She studied in the painting department at Poznan, but during her final years at the academy she found that the ‘painting started to escape her canvas.’ She began to create works that played with both two-dimensional painting and three-dimensional space, finally giving up the canvas altogether and instead using the space itself as a sort of 3-D painting.
Sosnowska treats space as a medium for her works, always designing projects to fit into a specific space. Often she modifies pre-existent architecture, transforming the physical space into mental space and playing with the viewer’s perceptions. She has explained: ‘I am especially interested in the moments when architectural space begins to take on the characteristics of mental space.’
