Come the Night of the Museums 2023, Galeria M will be overgrown with glass ivy, and the glittering vines and colorful foliage of Monika Rubaniuk. Her works are characterized by a multiplicity of shapes, and organic, irregular structures, composed of multiplied pieces of glass. The artist, who has drawn inspiration from nature since the beginning of her work, will fill the gallery with biomorphic glass forms. She will create a lush floral universe, that will blossom in Galeria M on the 20th of May, like a springtime BOOM.
