SCULTURA - Mixed technique, aluminum wires and textile elements
cm 13 x 10 x 7
Monika Kosior combines and blends manual skill and artificiality, the warmth of the fabric and the coldness of the metal into a work that is a life-size human heart, inserted into the treasure chest of a gold frame that protects and enhances its presence in the space. The title of the work, My Open Heart, plays with finesse between the ‘open heart’ of the artist’s psychological and spiritual intimacy and the almost surgical unveiling of the anatomy of an organ that has always been poised between its physical functions and its millennial metaphorical and symbolic connotation. The open heart of Monika Kosior, almost a lyrical relic, remains suspended between the fragility and lightness of the thread and the strength and flexibility of aluminum, in a tactile and chromatic pulsation that seems heated by emotions, suffering and mystic reverberations, poetic memories of a sacred heart renewed by the artist’s hand.
