    ...OUT OF HERE: The Veterans Project

    For three decades, Polish artist Krzysztof Wodiczko has addressed timely political, social, and psychological issues in his artwork, creating over 80 large-scale public projections around the world. In these works, he transforms the stories, voices, and gestures of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances by projecting them onto public monuments and landmarks.

    In a new, projection-based work for the ICA, Wodiczko focuses on veterans engaged in active combat in Iraq, as well as Iraqi civilians. In ...OUT OF HERE: The Veterans Project, the routine sounds of life are interrupted by the noise of destruction and chaos as Wodiczko’s narrative unfolds across three walls of the gallery.

    This immersive chronicle is based on the artist’s contact with medics, soldiers and refugees affected by the current conflict in Iraq, who described their experiences and shared with the artist video and audio of life during wartime. Created from their stories and accounts, the projected scenario reflects physical and psychological environment of combat, as well as the fragmented way experiences are perceived in distressing or uncertain situations.
