Marcin Dudek

b. 1979, lives and works in Brussels (BE) and Kraków (PL).

Graduate of the University of Art Mozarteum, Salzburg, and Central Saint Martins, London.

Dudek is an artist whose objects, installations, collage and performances touch upon questions regarding the role of control in society, the hierarchy of power, and mechanisms that govern the release of violence and aggression. His use of abstraction to deal with these questions further highlights the effort, anxiety and compulsion that characterise his process of image production. Dudek’s artistic practice is focused on situations that are based on the confrontation between the world of violence and the world of art. To construct these situations, he often invokes the history of extreme events that have taken place in stadium spaces, paired with events of his own experience as a teenage football fan. Dudek analyses the abstract concept of aggression, triggered frequently and often without premeditation, within the architecture of any given spectacle.
