Olek Embraces the Cold with “Chilled to the Bone” Sleds
Fresh off beating an assault rap across the pond in London, Olek is back to making art on the streets. The frigid city weather of late is seemingly the inspiration behind her newest neighborhood yarn-bombings. “Chilled to the Bone” is the message crocheted onto a pair of Flexible Flyers wrapped in that token pink-and-purple camouflage. One is stashed beside the former location of Billy’s Antiques, and the other is chained to the second-floor fire escape of 53 Second Avenue.
Olek fans will have an opportunity to scope her latest on February 23, kickoff of “The End is Far” exhibition at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in Chelsea.
