Monika Grzymala’s Aerial installation

Polish artist Monika Grzymala built this huge, bursting installation out of 5 km of black paper tape. The installation is ambitious, seemingly chaotic, and even violent. The tape wraps around corners and seems to splatter on to the wall as if it were liquid.

Using over three miles of black tape, Grzymala inundates the gallery space. Grzymala’s work adds dimensionality to a usually flat material in a way that is surprising and nearly disturbing. By appearing to forcibly occupy the gallery space, the installation compels the viewers to interact with the space in a new way.

Grzymala describes her installations in conventional units, but always considers the three dimensional drawings first in relation to the body. This humanising element to the work also relates back to the notion of architecture as a response to human proportions.
