Monika Sosnowska / Andrea Zittel, Monika Sosnowska. 1:1 / Schaulager, Basel / Switzerland

1:1 is the title of the show in which works by the artists Monika Sosnowska (*1972 in Poland) and Andrea Zittel (*1965 in the United States) are on display at Schaulager in Basel, Switzerland from April 26 until September 21, 2008. Both artists have in common that they respond to their different surroundings in terms of architecture, living space, daily routine, and traditions. Monika Sosnowska presents for the first time a group of nine sculptures, some of them on a monumental scale, in the open space of Schaulager’s lower floor. Monika Sosnowska lives and works in Warsaw. She had her first exhibition in Amsterdam in 2000. Since then, her work has been shown regularly in Europe and the United States. Sosnowska’s exhibition attracting the most attention so far was the one she installed in the Polish Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale (click here to view the video of the installation). April 23, 2008.
PS: On occasion of the exhibition two catalogues about the work of the artists have been edited by Schaulager Basel and Steidl Verlag, Göttingen.
