Olek's work connects diverse cultural practices and locations. By concealing the surface of the objects she crochets, Olek reveals the essential form beyond the superficial appearance of everyday materials. Her performance from the west end of 125th Street to the space her on Second Avenue, is a poetic gesture highlighting and honoring the contrast between the communities and aesthetics of East and West harlem while seeking at the same time to bind them together.
