And therein lies a yarn

“I crochet everything that enters my space,” says Olek. That means documents, sculptures, trees, bikes, cars, entire rooms, and even people. The Polish-born, New York-based artist crochets room-size installations, costumes for dance companies, wearable sculpture–and objects on the street including buildings, windows, walls, and benches. (Just don’t call her a yarn-bomber, OK?)

Can’t wait to see what she’ll do in the Bushwick Art Park, curated by Factory Fresh, coming to the New Museum’s Festival of Ideas next weekend. We’ll be there on Saturday May 7. Will you?

  1. I saw her crocheted people standing around holding signs, and the signs were really intriguing but I was wondering why she chose those particular ones. Any insight? The fair is great!
