Mia Dudek touches upon the encounter of the body within the European tradition, in an understated political and ideological context. The work focuses on the urbanisation, overpopulation and therefore, alienation of an individual. Through concentrated moments of assimilating herself to the surroundings, Mia Dudek is interested in Kafka's idea of home specifically designed prison for everyday existence as well as Lynchian machinery of living or threat. Restrictive environments are inescapable but also contain otherwise formless and fluid bodies that threaten to spill over the borders of inanimate structures. Mia Dudek's works have one mutual and strong concern - brutality, violence and power of the architecture; representing hermetic exteriors and their horizons endlessly bounded.
