This exhibition provides a panoramic view of Krzysztof Wodiczko, exploring all of his identities without reducing him to any one of them. The keywords of the exhibition title—Instruments, Monuments, Projections—refer to the formal elements that link his major activities, while also indicating the chronological changes to his working process. Gallery 5 at MMCA Seoul presents works of instruments and installations created in the late 1960s in Poland along with various Monumental Projections, interrogative designs, and a series of works regarding the brutality of war. They explore themes such as freedom and control in society, criticism of capitalism, issues of discrimination and human rights violation faced by immigrants and homeless people, and the artist’s voice for ending war. Gallery 7 at MMCA Seoul features My Wish (2017), the artist’s new work focused on Korean society, while also allowing us to have a look at the process of making the work.
