With her expansive "spatial drawings" and fascinating works using handmade paper, Monika Grzymala has developed one of the most unusual approaches to contemporary graphic art. The emancipation and evolution of the drawn line is Grzymala's primary artistic concern: in her site-responsive installations—which have transformed spaces at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2010), in collector Dian Woodner's private apartment in New York (2010), at the Biennale of Sydney (2012), and at the 49 Nord 6 Est FRAC Lorraine Collection in Metz, France (2011 and 2013), among others—and in her new work devised especially for the Saal der Meisterzeichnung at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, she constantly pushes the boundaries of the line by creating drawings in space.
