Moby Dick and Karl Marx dominate the creative output of Krzysztof M. Bednarski. The first is represented as a simple, smooth object that inspires thoughtful reflection.

Marx symbolises the regard for human fate, a regard that has inspired political crimes. KMB employs both these objects in terms of both form and ideas.
