Bence Magyarlaki is a Hungarian artist. He graduated with first class honours from BA Fine Art (Hons) at Central Saint Martins (London) in 2017.

His sculptures explore the tension between architectural containment and the gestural, social body. In the intuitive process of uniting architectural and body language, the artist uses body memory as his site of production. Each shape therefore is an expression of a sensation remembered or revisited, often referencing the intimacy of one’s own body, or its relatedness and relative position to another.

Instead of considering the body as oppressed by architecture – that appears here as a representation of societal control – the artist is proposing the body’s transformative potential within itself and on the societal structures that control and oppress desires.

His work has been displayed at Saatchi Gallery, Gasworks Gallery and Copeland Gallery (London, 2017).
