In her multifaceted practice, Monica Bonvicini investigates the structures of power that govern gender, sexuality, space, environment, and institutions – dry-humored, direct, and imbued with historical, political, and social references. Her work has been displayed in many solo and group exhibitions as well as biennials all over the world. Sculptures by Monica Bonvicini are permanently installed and have become sights in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, on the Bjørvika fjord in front of the Oslo Opera House, and on the façade of Weserburg Museum, Bremen. Bonvicini has earned numerous awards, including the Golden Lion at the Biennale di Venezia (1999); the Preis der Nationalgalerie für junge Kunst, Berlin (2005); and the Oskar Kokoschka Prize, Vienna (2020).
