Krzysztof Wodiczko, Loro (Them), Milan
On the occasion of Milano Photo Week and under the patronage of the City of Milan and the Department of Culture and Social Policy, More Art presents Loro (Them), a multimedia installation by Krzysztof Wodiczko, an internationally renowned Polish artist who lives between New York and Boston and teaches at Harvard University, staged on 6, 7 and 8 June. Epicenter of the performance is Alberto Burri’s Teatro Continuo.
While the Western world questions the impact of immigration, Wodiczko’s project Loro (Them), starting from the point of view of the marginalized, considered invisible, makes us know their voices and their stories. The purpose is to create the conditions for dialogue and mutual understanding.
Since the 1980s Wodiczko has been combining in his works attention to situations of marginalization with the use of new technologies.
In the case of Loro (Them) he uses drones, often associated with images of war and violation of privacy, to generate a sense of closeness. The drones, equipped with two screens showing only the eyes of the people involved in the project and a megaphone-like nose/mouth, will fly at low altitude to tell the stories collected by Krzysztof Wodiczko.
