Piotr Wyrzykowski [Poland]
How to Educate a Ruler?
location: auditorium of the Seondary School, 6 Wały Piastowskie Str
This work turns American author Robert Greene’s infamous book 48 Laws of Power into the platform for an interactive installation. Claiming to have discovered its pages as part of a 17th century handbook used to teach young men the proper (if harsh) practices of political rulers, Wyrzykowski creates hypnotic 3D renderings of ominous instruction.
