Kunsthal Extra City

Extra City is proud to present the first institutional solo exhibition in the Benelux by Marcin Dudek (Krakow, 1979). The Group brings together works and installations in which crowd psychology and the spectacle are central themes. Originating from his violent youth within the inner hooligan circle of football club KS Cracovia, Dudek’s work has been imbued with questions about the masses, safety and violence, psychology, family, but above all about our urge to belong.

Ring of Animals is the first solo exhibition of Young In Hong (Seoul, 1972) in Belgium. It presents a series of new works that activate a forgotten communal space that premodern people believed to be real. A sacred area in which spirits of all living organisms can communicate through natural connections while being linked in relationships of equality. For this, Hong was inspired by the architectural setting of the exhibition space and its proximity to Antwerp Zoo.
