In conjunction with "CROSSOVER/S," Miroslaw Balka's first retrospective in Italy, Pirelli HangarBicocca presents a limited edition that the artist conceived for the occasion. This print, produced in an edition of 80 pieces, comes from the film of the same title, which was created especially for the show at Pirelli HangarBicocca. Placed at the entrance to the exhibition, Holding the Horizon depicts a horizontal yellow line moving infinitely across a black background. In this limited edition, the artist graphically recreates the "model" used to shoot the video, introducing new reflections on light and darkness, time and memory.

Miroslaw Balka (born 1958), graduated from the sculpture department of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts in 1985. In the 1980s, he was the author of figurative sculptures associated with the current of neo-expressionism. Since the early 1990s, he has been creating minimalist sculptural compositions using simple materials such as raw stone, wood, salt, ash and organic substances. The main theme of Bałka's sculptures and compositions is the human body and its accompanying "everyday" objects and substances, as well as the memory associated with the body. There are allusions to transience in his work, and the subject of the Holocaust is also important.
