MARCIN DUDEK / ARTIST RESIDENCY – LAUNCH PAD LAB / CHARENTE, FRANCE

www.launchpadart.org

“For its first edition Launch Pad Lab in late May, artists Ewa Axelrad, Marcin Dudek and choreographer Joe Moran will be in residence. Each edition will feature collateral events that are designed to bring the artists’ research and processes to the attention of invited curators, collectors, other artists and professionals. These events will take place on site during the residency periods, and afterwards, in London and Paris.

Marcin Dudek (b 1979) works with objects, installations, collage, painting and performance, touching upon questions of power, control and violence. As a former young member of the KS Cracovia fan club, Marcin draws on his personal archive and social sciences, to unravel the transformation of a mass of individuals into a singular volatile entity. A graduate of the University Mozarteum Salzburg and Central Saint Martins, Dudek has shown internationally at institutions including Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Salzburger Kunstverein, the Arad Art Museum, Bunkier Sztuki and the Goethe-Institut Ukraine. His installation “The Cathedral of Human Labor” (2013) is on permanent view at the Verbeke Foundation in Belgium. In 2018 he will have a solo presentation at the Wrocław Contemporary Museum and a large project in the context of Manifesta 12 Palermo. Marcin lives and works in Brussels.”
