Artist profile

Stefan Gec

Stefan Gec’s work focuses on technology and the ways that machines like submarines, satellites and space stations may reveal and illuminate the social political and cultural contexts that brought them into being. Gec's work is both abstract and loaded, with complex constructions and models.

Previous projects use beautiful models like the Trident Submarine, or photographs like the Star City Space facility just outside Moscow, to reveal other narratives, dreams and losses of our contemporary world and its changing visions of the future.

Stefan Gec has exhibited widely in Europe and the UK and was one of the shortlisted artists asked to present a proposal for the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square by the National Gallery.
