Ludwika Ogorzelec

Ludwika Ogorzelec’s work defies everything we understand as conventional sculpture:  heavy, permanent, solid:  something to be seen from the outside, not through. It seeks to make visible the invisible, to ìcrystallizeî the space.  Her temporary works are built directly into the environment and spring forth like a passing phenomenon, taking meaning from biology, machines and instruments. 

Her material, industrial cellophane, allows her to make very large, lightweight structures that are resistant to rain, wind and sun.

Ogorzelec has exhibited around the world, including in her native country of Poland, Canada, Belgium, all over Europe, Australia, South America, and the United States.  She earned her Masters degree in sculpture from the Fine Arts Academy in Wroclaw, Poland and was the recipient of the Pollock/Krasner grant in 2000. She lives in Paris, France.
