“Drawing represents for me the most honest gesture, the moment of truth when the paper and I breathe together, the line offering in its simplicity many variable forms of expression”.
With her expansive spatial drawings, Monika Grzymala has developed a unique, unusual approach to contemporary drawing and installation art. Raumzeichnung (Reflection), the work she is creating site specifically for Fabrica will use more than eight kilometers of silver-mirrored tape to transform, re-imagine and re-draw Fabrica’s interior.
This ephemeral and temporary installation responds to the theme of a mutable and changing landscape, using drawing in its most expanded form to explore our psychological and aesthetic relationship to the landscapes that surround us.
This exhibition forms part of Time and Place, a European-funded cross-border collaboration project led by Fabrica and featuring five cultural partners in the UK and France. It responds to Changing Landscape, one of the central themes of the project.
Time and Place has been selected in the framework of the Interreg IVA France (Channel) – England cross-border European cooperation programme, part-financed by the ERDF.

Exhibition Visitor Comments
The sculpture reminds me of Brighton, the sky and the sea. It’s beautiful.
Very reminiscent of the distortion scenes in Hitchock’s Rear Window. It changes perspective from underneath. Interesting and thought provoking.
Glad I came on such a light and sunny day with all the reflections! Beautiful.
