“OLEK: Knitting is for Pus****” at Christopher Henry Gallery
Christopher Henry Gallery proudly presents Knitting is for Pus****, its first solo show of Polish-born New York-based artist Olek. Hundreds of miles of crocheted, weaved, and often recycled materials, forms, and spaces are the fabric from which the wild and occasionally functional structures of Olek’s fantasylands are born. Olek has, in essence, reassessed the readymades of Marcel Duchamp. The gallery will serve as the “home base” for Olek’s exhibit, a multi-media sculptural environment, featuring an entire room completely covered in crochet. Additionally, the viewers/participants may follow her threads out of the gallery using a map to discover new objects added weekly she has crocheted and intertwined throughout the neighborhoods of NOLITA and L.E.S.
