Lives and works in Caracas, Venezuela
Ania Borzobohaty is a young sculptor of Polish origin with dual nationality and working between Paris and Caracas in Venezuela. A graduate of the Sorbonne, she also studied Fine Arts in Granada, Spain, and Warsaw, Poland.
Working only the metal and more particularly the steel that she covers with Epoxy paint, she has the solid or perforated metal planes parallel or perpendicular in the spirit of the great Polish artist Katarzyna Kobro (1898-1951). Its reduced polychrome highlights the different geometric elements. His works take a variety of forms, from foot sculptures to small series reliefs that hang on the wall. Its reliefs can sometimes be manipulated because they have moving parts, sometimes bright when it includes neon colors. She also develops different models of doors in relief.
His work is most often attached to the movement MADI appeared in the middle of the twentieth century under the leadership of Carmelo Arden-Quin. This movement requires artists the greatest freedom in the means of expression, the materials used and the use of space with however one imperative: to leave the traditional rectangle of the painted canvas inherited from the Renaissance to explore the multiple possibilities offered by the confrontation between the created form and the surrounding space.
The sculptures of Ania Borzobohaty are thus present in the collections of the Madi Museum of Sobral (Brazil), the Geometric and Madi Art Museum of Dallas (USA) and the museum of Montbéliard (France). The dynamism of these volumes, their three-dimensionality and the geometry of the voids and solids, make the art of this Franco-Polish artist fits naturally into the tradition of the art of construction.
