Cyrilla Mozenter is a New York-based artist working in drawing and sculpture. Her work incorporates pratices traditionally considered to be "feminine," such as hand-stitching, and makes frequent reference to the writings of Gertrude Stein. Her most recent works are self-supporting sculptures made of industrial wool felt. Because felt is a non-woven, compressed material, using it as a medium is unpredicatable. Mozenter explores this element of the textile by sewing it into geometrical forms and working against its nature.
Mozenter's work as exhibited widely across New York, including solo shows at Lesley Heller Workspace, Garrison Art Center, Adam Baumgold Gallery, Dieu Donné Papermill, The Drawing Center, BAM, as well as The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut and Espaço Cultural Municipal Sérgio Porto in Rio de Janiero. She has been in residence at Dieu Donné Papermill, the Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin, and Instituto Municipal de Arte e Cultural-Rioarte in Rio De Janiero. She has received two fellowships from NYFA and two project grants from The Fifth Floor Foundation. Her work is in numerous public collections including the Brooklyn Museum and the Yale University Art Gallery.
