Sosnowska’s work involves modifying pre-existing or purpose-built architectural forms, transforming the physical space into mental space and playing with the viewers’ perceptions. Her works are always intriguing and incorporate an element of surprise, so that the viewer wandering through them begins to lose his sense of orientation and to wonder whether his surroundings are real or fictional.
