Polish sculptor Monika Sosnowska's (born 1972) monumental work, "Tower" (2014), a reproduction frame twisted to look like a reclining figure, was inspired by the iconic modernist architect, Mies van der Rohe. This publication follows Sosnowska's process from the initial idea through intermediate steps of fabrication.

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.

Poland’s representative at the 2007 Venice Biennale, Monika Sosnowska, transgresses the rather artificial border between contemporary art and architecture. Sosnowska is interested in places encumbered with error, knocked out of functionality. Here, she analyzes post-war architectural concepts from the point of view of an Eastern European.

Polish artist Monika Sosnowska makes work with space and about space, so that space becomes an experience and attributes such as "narrow" or "wide," "closed" or "open," "low" or "high" are experienced sensuously and emotionally.
