Kuba Dorabialski is an artist and writer originally from Wrocław, Poland. His work attempts to reconcile Modernism with mysticism, and radical leftist politics with the personal poetic. In his spare time he harbours a deep, melancholy nostalgia for soviet aesthetics.
He is currently working on a large-scale video installation project that explores themes of urban planning, 20th century socialist architecture, Elias Canetti, radical politics in contemporary Eastern Europe, and crowds. It will be shot throughout the Balkans in October of this year, and exhibited at Firstdraft in early 2016.
He has exhibited work in the US and Australia and been involved in a number of community building activities, including performance events, children’s workshops and publishing projects. His writing has appeared in Runway and Try Hard Magazine. He is currently a MFA candidate at UNSW, Art and Design.
