While normally reserved for statues of bulls on Wall street, or excavators in Katowice, or even entire barn houses in Oregon, we are down-right smitten today to announce the utterly unprecedented opportunity to attain an original installation from one of contemporary art’s most curious little treasures — Olek– as she has done the unthinkable and transformed one of Hendrick’s Artist’s Boxes into a one-of-a-kind, crochet masterpiece! One which you may win with a mere swipe of your keys.
“A loop after a loop. Hour after hour her madness becomes crochet. Life and art are inseparable.”
Olek was born Agata Oleksiak in Poland and graduated from Adam Mickiewicz University with a degree in cultural studies. In New York, she rediscovered her ability to crochet and, since then, has started her crocheted journey. Olek believes she chose crocheting as her artistic method to be able to do two things at once: to watch movies and make art.
Résumé sniffers may be pleased to know Olek’s work has been presented in galleries from Brooklyn to Harlem, to Istanbul to Venice, Poland and Brazil, featured in The New York Times, Fiberarts Magazine, The Village Voice, and The Washington Post and drags a tail of dance performance sets and costumes too numerous to mention. Her work changes from place to place. With a miner’s work ethic, she longs to delve deeper and deeper into her investigations.
