Please join us this Saturday (January 26) between 14:30 and 20:30 for the opening of Marcin Dudek’s first solo exhibition in Belgium.
‘Too Close for Comfort,’ by Marcin Dudek (Poland 1979).
In ‘Too Close for Comfort,’ what begins with semi-autobiographical research that traces lines from football subculture to organized crime, results in a rupture, forcing open a complex discussion about media and hooliganism. Dudek’s Anti-Readymade attitude is much more than an art world critique. It is an everyday agenda depicted in several previous projects, such as his construction of a workspace on a rooftop in East London (Screen House, 2010) or unauthorized museum intervention ‘Exico’ (2011).
Anti-Readymade is synonymous with anti-mainstream, controlling your own production and resisting the urgency of mediated experience. Dudek stands firmly against what he calls ‘the corruption of skills,’ referencing the potential outsourcing of absolutely everything as he reinvents the architecture of the basement to investigate what’s going on upstairs.
