Marcin Dudek

Marcin Dudek (b. 1979, Krakow) studied at the University of Art Mozarteum, Salzburg, and Central Saint Martins, London, graduating in 2005 and 2007 respectively. 

His work often broaches on the concept of space, using sculptures and installations to investigate the way we interact and respond to the environments we live, work and learn in. Even his work on paper seems to transcend the two-dimensional with his colourful collages taking on a texture and quality reminiscent of his sculptural work.

Recent solo presentations include Head in the Sand at Leto Gallery (Warsaw, 2015), We Stumbled as we Clambered at Edel Assanti (London, 2015), Saved by an Unseen Crack at Harlan Levey Projects (Brussels, 2015, 2013) and Land of space and optimism at Galerie Marion de Canniere (Antwerp, 2013). His work has been exhibited internationally at institutions including Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Kunstlerhaus, Salzburg, the Arad Art Museum, Bunkier Sztuki and the Goethe Institute, Kiev. His installation “The Cathedral of Human Labor”, 2013, in on permanent view at the Verbeke Foundation in Antwerp. 

In 2015, Dudek created the permanent site-specific work, HUFF (House Under Four Flags), in Gillman Barracks, Singapore. This hand-crafted 10 x 10 m wooden sculptural installation and artist’s studio was not simply made as a reflection of Dudek’s passion for craftmanship, but also as a statement against the ready-made aesthetic.

He currently has a two-part solo exhibition in Brussels, Belgium and London, UK titled Steps and Marshes. His upcoming projects include working with the Trafo Center for Contemporary Art in Poland.

Dudek currently lives and works between Brussels and London.
