Magdalena Dukiewicz, body turn object (2022). Hydrolyzed collagen, artist blood and hair, scrap metal.

Magdalena Dukiewicz is a Polish-born Brooklyn-based visual artist. She graduated from Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts and from Complutense University in Madrid.
Dukiewicz’s work is grounded in her process and the materials used. She juxtaposes organic materials and bodily products (her own blood and hair) with upcycled and repurposed industrial components. Each piece provokes visceral reactions while welcoming open-ended associations and ambiguities. Dukiewicz plays with those culturally and politically charged bodily products, exploring how their perceptions linked to the changing contexts. She presents the body as a revolutionary space of antagonism and freedom, expression and research, self-definition and power, identity, and gender.
