If you’ve got a craving for some art, we highly recommend you wander over to east London and check out Monika Grzymala’s exhibition, Ruptures, currently showing at The Drawing Room. This is Grzymala’s first solo exhibition in the UK, and we’re totally hot for her beautifully intricate instillations.
Born in Poland and living in Berlin, Grzymala’s site-specific installations exist happily in the space between architectural interventions and immense line drawings. For the Drawing Room, her instillation was inspired by the chaos of the London skyline, using kilometers of white and grey sticky tape to fill each corner of the gallery, creating a massive three-dimensional drawing. The exhibition also includes a colorful wall drawing in adhesive tape, and a wall drawing in lead tape, all equally as alluring to the eyes.
Ruptures was commissioned by The Drawing Room to coincide with ‘The end of the line: attitudes in drawing,’ the Hayward Touring exhibition.
Saturday 7 March, 15.00 Monika Grzymala ‘In Conversation’ with Michael Newman, Professor of Art Writing, Goldsmiths College, University of London and Associate Professor in Art History, Theory, and Criticism, School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Admission free, booking essential.
