End date 11.07.2021

Monika Weiss is a prominent Polish-American artist living in New York. Over the past twenty-five years she has developed an aesthetic vocabulary of profound emotional impact. She works often with omitted or forgotten histories. Her works present a woman’s body, including her own, as a vehicle of memory and a potential site of transformation.  The exhibition at the Chapel Gallery is dedicated to Monika Weiss's latest project - the Nirbhaya monument, which will be on permanent display in the Sculpture Park. By evoking lament that has a revolutionary dimension for the artist, Monika Weiss creates a monument to the right to mourn a loss - a monument dedicated to the fight against violence.

The exhibition at Chapel Gallery is devoted to the artist’s forthcoming monument project Nirbhaya and includes a 3d model of the piece. As well as three from the artist’s series of twelve large-scale drawings Dafne (for Nirbhaya) 2020, a drawing  triptych Sustenazo (Nosze) 2010 (collection CCA Ujazdowski Castle), as well a series of 19 short silent films and related musical compositions by the artist, collectively titled Two Laments (19 Cantos) 2015-2020.

Information about the forthcoming monument, related monographic publication and the series of panel discussions can be found here: Monika Weiss Nirbhaya
