 ‘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.


Marcin Dudek, Akumulator, 2018, steel, wood, medical tape, mirror, neon light, iron, paper, leather, silicon and cell phone, 290 x 220 x 220 cm, installation view at Edel Assanti, London, 2019.


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