“Sosnowska’s Warsaw is at one and the same time this archipelago of non-places and the Communist-era city of tower blocks, now garishly clad in an act of historical forgetting.”

Brian Dillon, Parkett 91

“Monika Sosnowska's primary concern and medium of choice is space, be it of a physical, architectural, structural, or mental nature. Her perception-distorting, site-specific installations reveal the artist's talent for framing existing space in intelligent and unforeseen ways. Her installation for Parkett, “Fly Repellent”, a silently rotating, electrically driven wire with two plastic bags, thus creates a sense of quirkyness and slight unease, thereby demonstrating how inextricably linked architectural space is with psychological states.” -Fineartmultiple
