Biography

Monika Grzymala is a Polish-born, Berlin-based artist specializing in site-specific drawings that occupy both two- and three-dimensional space. “Very quickly my line left the page and continued onto the walls,” she has said. Grzymala works predominantly with tape, which she spins into vortexes, whirlpools, and scribbles that project out from walls and spill onto floors. The artist once used 27,000 feet of tape for a single exhibition. She records tape measurements in terms of distance, rather than weight or amount, to reflect the performance-like element of physical work that goes into every piece.
