Let's Not get Caught, Let's Keep Going


  • Gallery Show at Stolen Space | London, UK
  • 09.05.14 - 01.06.14
  • For this new body of work Olek pays homage to Miss Van, a friend and contemporary she greatly admires in recreating several of Miss Van's favorite paintings in crochet form and displaying these artworks as photographic representations. Focusing on the masks which appear in both their work, Olek has worked with masks herself in both her artworks and performances for years, she brings Miss Van's painted masks to life in crochet. Along with these new works, Olek will cover the gallery floor to ceiling in her signature crochet.
  • Olek's exhibition title, 'Let's not get caught, let's keep going', borrows itself from a Thelma and Louise film quote which reminds the artist of her friendship with Miss Van: "Vanessa truly is a person who you can steal horses with."
