Artists have always flocked to Paris for inspiration, and Polish-American sculptor Kasia Ozga is no exception. She’s been in Paris for the last year under the auspices of the prestigious Harriet Hale Woolley Grant, and this week the Foundation of the United States is hosting a free exhibit of her sculpture. Entitled “Body|Metaphor,” the exhibit is open until Thursday, May 10, 2007 and is well worth a visit.
This exhibit represents an opportunity to peek into the capital’s thriving contemporary art scene. The sculptures and installations presented explore suspended movement, and interactions between the human body and its environment. Located at the Fondation des Etats-Unis at 15 Blvd. Jourdan in the 14th arrondissement (metro Porte d’Orléans on the line 4, or Cité Universitaire on RER B or the Tram line 3.) The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, and is totally free.
