Simone Rueß is observing the structures of cities and analysing its qualities with different perspectives. Especially she is interested how the citiziens make use of the urban space. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Simone Rueß came to Warsaw in 2008 for a DAAD-postgraduate-scholarship. There she was consulted by Grzegorz Kowalski, who introduced her into the theories of Open Forms of Oskar Hansen. From 2009 till 2011 Simone Rueß is recipient of the Baden-Württemberg grant. In her recent show Kręgosłup in the Studio Gallery in Warsaw, Rueß has dealt with the Palace of Culture and Science (PkiN). The huge social-realistic building is towering Warsaw since 1955. Kręgosłup is a personal observation of shapes inside the PKiN and the surrounding site.
