Fairy Tales Are Not Real


Olek
“Fairy Tales Are Not Real”
Black and White Digital Print, 2009
Created during the residency at
Instituto Sacatar, Brazil

Olek (born Agata Oleksiak) rediscovered her talent for crocheting after moving from her native Poland to New York. Resume sniffers will be pleased to know that Olek's work has been presented in galleries and biennales throughout New York Turkey Italy, Brazil and Poland. The New York Times, Fiberarts Magazine, Village Voice, and Washington Post have also featured her work. Her numerous awards include the Ruth Mellon Award for Sculpture, the Apex Art Gallery Award and residencies at Sculpture Space and the Instituto Sacatar in Brazil. Olek can often be found dragging a tail of dance performance sets and costumes to locations too numerous to mention.
