Extreme Crocheting


Polish-born artist, Olek, loves watching movies and making art; creating these crochet works allows her to do both at the same time. This is definitely not your granny's crocheted doilies and toilet paper roll covers. Olek turns the traditional craft into something edgy by covering everyday objects with crochet, transforming them into installation pieces. She explains her work this way: 
The movies I watch while crocheting influence my work, and my work dictates the films I select. I crochet everything that enters my space. Sometimes it’s a text message, a medical report, found objects. There is the unraveling, the ephemeral part of my work that never lets me forget about the limited life of the art object and art concept. What do I intend to reveal? You have to pull the end of the yarn and unravel the story behind the crochet.

Coincidence: My friend Geoffrey just did a photo shoot with this woman yesteday for another magazine. I was sure that the figure in the purple was him but he says no. Still, a pretty funny bit of timing.
