Magdalena Abakanowicz is Polish sculptor, significant for her use of textiles as a sculptural medium.
1960s she produced maybe the most important works in her career, she began producing gigantic three-dimensional fiber works called Abakans. Each Abakan is made out of woven material using Abakanowicz’s own technique. During the 1970s and 1980s, Abakanowicz changed a little bit her work, she began a series of figurative and non-figurative sculptures made out of pieces of coarse sackcloth which she sewed and pieced together and bonded with synthetic resins. Her most recent work is a project called Agora, consists of 106 cast iron figures, each about nine feet tall.
