Olek @ Jonathan LeVine GalleryJuxtapoz // Saturday, 20 Aug 2011
Polish-born, New York-based Olek is famed for her crochet work in both public and galleries. The Bad Artists Imitate, The Great Artists Steal, her new solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, features a site-specific installation with a new series of crochet sculptures and canvases.
As LeVine notes, "The title of the exhibition refers to a work created by world-renowned British street artist Banksy for his 2009 Bristol Museum show, in which he carved a quote by Pablo Picasso into stone, crossed out the late artist’s name and replaced it with his own."
We are huge fans of the salon chair that Olek created, that you see above.
