“…Twenty years ago Dudek was one of Cracovia Kraków hooligans who took part in fights, violent football stadium expressions, and experienced solidarity and loyality provided by the group. Now in the field of visual art he examines the universal problem of functioning as an individual amongst a crowd. He shows a system based on conflicts and agreements and refers to the symbols associated with our idea of hooligan groups: violence, riot flares, local chauvinism and an attachment to their clubs’ and national colours (he often uses orange and black). For example a bomber jacket, turned inside out to reveal its blaze orange lining, is one of Dudek’s most often used object. In the 90s such jackets became a firm element of football hooligan fashion. Today, orange is the colour of anti-establishment, anti-government struggles, and of political revolutions. Orange flares, a punching bag, a stone in Dudek’s hand, football stickers and the artist strolling through gallery during opening with a knife – all are Marcin Dudek’s tools in his new social group – the art world.”

On Art Brussels Gallery Night, we’re thrilled to open a solo exhibition from Petr Davydtchenko who presents his video installation “Voznesenie (Ascension),” first shown at the Moscow Biennale (for young art). It is a six channel work with images displayed horizontally, vertically and diagonally, giving an omnipresent aura to the man surfacing from the thick residual mud of the underground. In addition to this installation, Davydtchenko will also present a series of new paintings that shed more subtle light on the depicted ascension.
We are honored to have been selected as the winner of the ‘Discovery Prize’ at Art Brussels. Visit us today through Sunday in booth D07.
Art Brussels is right around the corner. We’ll be presenting works from Haseeb Ahmed, Ella Littwitz and Emmanuel Van der Auwera. You can have a look at our page on Artsy here. If you missed Haseeb’s exhibition “WIRD” during the last Brussels Gallery Weekend, have a look at the teaser.

“Harlan Levey Projects booth was particularly outstanding with crypto-cyber works by Amelie Bouvier, Marcin Dudek and Emmanuel Van der Auwera. Dudek’s densely collaged circuitry of knife-cut gaffer tape suggests mechanical wizardry within mundane monochrome.” – Berlin Art Link
