Brussels: Marcin Dudek

STEPS AND MARCHES
During the 10th edition of the Brussels Gallery Weekend, Harlan Levey Projects is pleased to present our 3rd solo exhibition with Marcin Dudek, ‘Steps & Marches’. This is a collaborative exhibition with Chapter I taking place in Brussels and Chapter II in London at Edel Assanti Gallery. Similar to his 2013 exhibition “Too Close for Comfort,” each chapter begins with the artist retracing his steps as a teenage member of the Cracovia football fan club. Thumbnail-sized photographs from Dudek’s personal archive discretely share a 27-frame sequence, which traces events on the way to and from the stadium to watch an EC qualifying match between Poland and Romania in 1995.
Works in both exhibitions extend beyond personal narrative to explore the materials, messages and political contexts of the stadium in an ongoing investigation of group behavior, crowd control, violence and spectacle. Questions raised in Brussels are further explored in London as focus shifts from individuals entering a crowd, to the force of the crowd as a single body
