This exhibition is the first solo show of Ania Jaworska, a trained architect and designer, who explores the history of architecture and its relationship to society through two new projects that reveal a stage in the architect’s process. In the first project, Jaworska creates a site-specific installation of large, monochromatic black sculptures that reference common architectural elements such as arches, obelisks, gates, and signs. Set in a dark gallery space and removed from their traditional context of community, place, and time, the sculptures lose their symbolic importance and function. Her approach to the visual language of architecture is marked by humor, irony, and a use of bold, minimalist forms. The exhibition also features a series of drawings commenting on the history and current state of columns, exploring their trajectory from symbols of power and status, to open-ended forms that are often deployed with irony or cynicism. The exhibition is organized by Grace Deveney, the MCA Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow.
