Monika Sosnowska

The exhibition presents three sculptures entitled Gate, originally conceived in 2014 for Ginza Maison Hermès Le Forum in Tokyo.
In producing Gate—as in the case of previous projects such as 1:1 (2007), Stairway (2010) or Tower (2014)—Sosnowska started from actual-size architectural elements. Three gates typical for post-war architecture in Warsaw, were taken as point of departure for the fabrication of the steel-structures suspended from the ceiling of the gallery´s main space. By twisting, stretching, and resetting the initial configuration of the models she created new objects detached from the functionality distinctive of the former gates.
