Artist Statement

Marcin Dudek’s practice follows enclosed spaces – how we make them and how we interact with them when they are made. Dudek himself grew up in the housing estates that can be found across Poland, and his irritation with these flats was not so much to do with their sizes as with their repetition. An attempt to escape the mundane is a recurring theme in Dudek’s work, whether applied to the surface of a cardboard or to the gallery space itself.
Dudek’s current investigation is concerned with the tunnels used by drug smugglers along the US-Mexican border and the Cu Chi tunnels excavated by the Vietcong during the Vietnam War.


In I Will Eat This Sleepy Town (2011), Dudek has unearthed a tunnel that led the visitor across the gallery in a peculiar and convoluted path. This construction, made from little more than packaging tape, became an imposing and solid conduit for the visitor’s movement and thought from the surface to the antipodean’s interior.
