Monika Weiss Artist Profile

Monika Weiss is a Polish-American artist whose work examines relationships between history and postmemory. Her performative installations, films, objects and sound compositions, function in the context of the phenomenology of body, gesture, trace and enunciation.  The artist often conducts an intensive research, collaborating with historians or archivists. In the words of British art critic GuyBrett Weiss’ performative installations “provide an alternative experience of space and time, which is not end-driven but steady and enduring, establishing and deepening a human presence. Her art is a unique combination of technological media (video projection) and the ancient activity of drawing. Sound is also an important element, meticulously composed by the artist it lifts silent filmed actions into another realm of meaning.

Organized by Lehman College ArtGallery, City University of New York in 2005, “Monika Weiss-FiveRivers” was the first retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work to date and reviewed in The New York Times. Recent individual exhibitions include also “Sustenazo” at the Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Poland. Upcoming is “Sustenazo (Lament II)” at the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago, Chile (2012-2013). Recent exhibitions include also Muzeum Montanelli, Prague, Kunsthaus Dresden and Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, Miami. Two monographs on the artist's work have been published, "Five Rivers" by CUNY (2007) and "Vessels" by Chelsea Art Museum (2004). The artist's own writing has been published among others in "Being Syncretic" (Springer, New York/Wien, 2009) and "Technoetic Arts" (Intellect Books, Bristol, UK, 2006). The artist is currently professor at Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Art, Washington University in St. Louis. Represented by Galerie Samuel Lallouz, Montreal, Monika Weiss lives and works in New York City.
