Warsaw-based artist Miroslaw Balka (b. Otwock, Poland, 1958) presents and discusses his video and installation projects Sundays Kill More (2008), Postcards (2008), Mapping the Studio, Too, (2008), Bottom (1999/2003), and Bambi (from Winterreise) (2003). These works deal with both personal and collective memories, especially as they relate to the artist's Catholic upbringing and the collective experience of Poland's fractured history. Through this investigation of domestic memories and public catastrophe, Balka explores how subjective traumas are translated into collective histories and vice versa. His materials are simple, everyday objects, but of the resulting works resonate with ritual, hidden memories, and the legacy of the Nazi occupation of Poland.

Curated by Barbara London, Museum of Modern Art.
