Projections

Canada, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Documentary)

Director: Krysztof Wodiczko

Krysztof Wodiczko is an artist who does not dis­play his work in galleries but by using large for­mat slides to project his carefully constructed images on the facades of large public buildings, for all to see. He aims to engage the public by juxtaposing images and the environment/ build­ings on which they are projected. The film shows the artist developing some of his major projec­tions, as well as a sculptural exercise in public housing, demonstrating his wit and willingness to provoke and become involved in the issues which inspire his work.
