Magdalena Dukiewicz, flesh and blood (2019). Blood and Hydrolyzed Collagen with Air Bubbles.

Born in Warsaw, Poland Magdalena Dukiewicz is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. With a multidisciplinary approach that is often site-specific, Dukiewicz’s practice is mostly process-based with a combination of material experimentation and method. Her work revolves around the binomial of art-science and interactive art.
She uses mostly organic materials such as hydrolyzed collagen, bones, soil, squid ink, hair, and blood, among others, as well as found objects. Each material is chosen for its potential for transformation and intrinsic properties. The works are fragile, meant to break down over time until they finally decompose, leaving no waste.
