Library Shelf Location 18.BALK
Publication Date 2009
Description MIROSLAW BALKA: TOPOGRAPHY Over the past ten years the acclaimed sculptor Miroslaw Balka has been making concise and moving video works. Topography introduces this compelling and little known work and offers fresh insight into the work of one of the most important artists working today. Miroslaw Balka uses video as a repository of visual and thematic material, extending a sculptural language that is rich in associations with history and his native Poland. The body and its limitations, memory, and the space between looking and knowing are recurring themes. Coinciding with the artist’s commission for The Unilever Series in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Topography is presented as a multi-dimensional installation of image, sound and spatial wanderings. The exhibition is accompanied by this fully illustrated catalogue with essays by James E. Young, Professor of English and Judaic Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst and Suzanne Cotter, curator of the exhibition.
