The sculptor Monika Sosnowska is one of the best-known contemporary artists. Her often massive sculptures and installations in steel, concrete or other building materials engage with the legacy of East European modern art and its promises of progress – and what remains of it.

Sosnowska grew up in Socialist Poland and experienced the country’s transformation into a democratic market economy after 1989. She has observed the changes in society and the environment which followed on from that, and which continue to resonate today. Alongside selected works from the last 20 years the exhibition also shows many maquettes from Sosnowska’s studio, which provide a fascinating insight into her artistic creative process.
