09/10 - MOMA Oxford

"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 his monumental How It Is installation for the Tate’s Turbine Hall, this exhibition explores a different region of Balka’s art – his video works. Violent gesture and real sites of WWII atrocity are presented, all shot through with the artist’s usual poeticism."
