Marcin Dudek in Artlyst

'Recommended London Art Exhibitions December 2019' by Paul Carey Kent

Marcin Dudek at Edel Assanti to 20 December


‘Akumulator’ (Polish for ‘battery’), 2019 is a reconstruction – using some original elements – of the gym in the squatted basement of a block of flats in which the teenaged Dudek used to hang out with his mates – also involved in football hooliganism – in the late ’90s.


Features equipment made from whatever was lying around. The image is a more recent sculptural version of weights made from an old radiator.
