Nice one :)

. ..and it’s only black tape. This is really wonderful mind, like I see some neurons, or muscle strings, nerves or whaeva’ 🙂

great way to express ambitions idea, I only find this as info on tumblr ‘Monika Grzymala, Sticky Tape and on dozeen Miles & Miles of Sticky Tape ::: I’m not even sure if this are d right names of this installations, or do they have name actually but d concept is pretty sticky anyway .. 😉

Polish artist Monika Grzymala use lengths of black and white sticky tape, she applies adhesive tape directly to gallery walls to create three-dimensional drawings that can both wrap around corners and project outwards.

:from Sumarria Lunn Gallery [via dezeen] we read:
.
Monika Grzymala was born in Zabrze, Poland in 1970. Having moved to Germany with her family in 1980, she went on to study stone sculpture and restoration. It was only when a professor observed that her interest appeared to lie not in the objects themselves, but the relationships between them that the nature of her work changed. She stopped making sculpture and focused on drawing, exploring the basics of line and mark.

.

“Very quickly my line left the page and continued on the walls”
.
Western history has been preoccupied with drawing since records began. Indeed, many of these records are drawings themselves. From the illuminations in medieval manuscripts, through Renaissance depictions of the human form, to minimalist constructions made solely of lines, drawing has maintained its place in art. Grzymala references this sense of tradition, but sharply updates the practice by teasing it out of two-dimensions and out of its traditional medium.

.

“Her mastery and imagination have taken the liberation of drawing a step beyond what was accomplished by those who came before.”

Describing her use of materials in terms of distance rather than weight or amount, Grzymala claims her works are more akin to performance than conventional installation. By measuring her used spools of tape in length rather than number, she documents the physical effort she invests in every work.

.

“Time is a very important component of my work. The pieces are all
like time capsules.”
.
Each work is site-specific – created in response to the conditions and configuration of a given space. For an exhibition in New York 8.3 kilometers of black and white adhesive tape seemed to hurtle across the gallery walls, turn corners, then leap off the wall to wrap around a pillar. At London’s The Drawing Room the artist’s installation documented her response to the chaotic London skyline using kilometers of white and grey sticky tape to fill each corner of the gallery.

.

“Whenever I leave a work, I feel as if I leave a part of me, a part of my body behind… there’s a connection – an invisible line from Berlin to London to New York.”
