Ludwika Ogorzelec is a Polish sculptor, living and working in Paris since 1985. She was born in 1953 in Chobienia, Poland. She graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Wrocław (1978-1983), where she studied under prof. Leon Podsiadly. She also studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris (1985-1987) in the studio of the famous French sculptor César.
Her works have been presented at many individual and group exhibitions in galleries and museums, in France, Sweden, the United States, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Japan, Germany, Italy, Lebanon, Costa Rica and Poland.
She most often creates her monumental sculptures in situ (in open space, often in architecturally shaped surroundings, in the interior of museum exhibition rooms and galleries), forming them from repeatedly intersecting lines that mark the edges of the three-dimensional space (Crystallization of Space cycle). The material of her sculptures is the space itself and the line of wood, metal or glass is only a contour of the “space crystallization”. Ludwika Ogorzelec’s works are usually created in relation to the context of the cultures and places in which they are presented.
