MAGDA KIRK - KIERAN LEACH

Without Warning celebrates the dialogue between painting and sculpture in a first-ever Italian

duo exhibition by Magda Kirk and Kieran Leach.

The exhibition explores the aesthetics and shapes of the present time, molded by the internet culture mixing abstracted elements of everyday life with the human body.

Magda Kirk was born in 1990 in Poland. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland in 2015. Her painting revolves around the theme of body image. She creates subjective impressions of ordinary, contemporary men who struggle with their identity, self-esteem, and self-expression. They watch their bodies in the mirror, and what they see are their ideas about themselves, distorted under the influence of cultural expectations.

Kieran Leach (b. 1994) is an artist based in Manchester, UK, predominantly working in sculpture. Kieran's work encounters elements of everyday, online, and ‘art world’ cultures, which are abstracted, condensed, and often satirized. From playful sculptural forms to modified ready-mades, his work employs a strong aesthetic sensibility and commonly approaches works with a humorous slant. His sculptures are varied, exploring notions such as artifice, language, cartoon physics, and the absurd.
