What we call ‘progress’ doesn’t necessarily take the direction we expect. Sometimes, in an attempt to ‘modernise’, the march of society pulls the rug from beneath our feet.

In their duo exhibition, Marcin Dudek and Ben Washington create parallel large-scale installations. Both artists pick up on the need to ‘push forward’, the need to dig or climb, but also the dangers of being swallowed up or lost in the clouds.
