Ludwika Ogorzelec is a Polish sculptor who has lived and worked in France for many years. Her work is characterized by a space defined by delicate pieces of wood and glass. The artist himself performs many difficult compositions. – I don’t understand how you can give your creativity to technicians. It is as if the pianist asked for help pressing the keys. It is difficult to say exactly how long the installation process will take. It all depends on the size of the statue. I always include the past tense, which is the experience I’ve gained over the years. As for the statue I made in the courtyard of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, it is 40 years and 10 days – Ludwika Ogorzelec explained.

Ludwika Ogorzelec, as a young woman, created her art program in which she described the crystallization of space. Its phenomenon is to present transparency, lightness, space and light in the works. The sculptor’s artistic path began in Lower Silesia to lead her to Paris. – It all started at university. We got an assignment clause from the professor regarding the scale. At the time, I was walking on stilts and analyzing the phenomenon of the human body. I was wondering what movement you should make to maintain balance. It was later written about me that I entered the creative path on stilts. It is a funny fact – added the artist with a smile.

– It was a wonderful adventure time. I don’t know if I was thinking about the hardships then. However, there were followers who used my ideas and made a fortune by signing their names under my inventions. The works I created were non-commercial, and were considered an unknown artist. It was difficult for me to get financial support. I felt pressured in a corner and in an invisible space so that the inconvenient truth wouldn’t come out. Many people borrowed my achievements and worked on them – She said.
– The award surprised me very much. I don’t even know how I should feel about her emotionally. I am not used to the bonus. It’s a wonderful feeling for me. I’m very happy and I hope I don’t have to face criticism anymore Summarize Ludwika Ogorzelec.
