Sculptor Ursula von Rydingsvard discusses the construction of her monumental work Czara z Babelkami (2006), on view in SFMOMAs fifth-floor sculpture garden. She reflects on how her sculptural practices relate to her family’s history as Polish peasant farmers and World War II refugees, describing a dark past that is still running through her blood.
