Happiness is an Inside Job – Re-Visit 2012 for This Yarn Installation by Olek

In 2012 mission in Hong Kong, “Olek spent almost three weeks working around the clock to embellish, or crochet, the interiors of Elements Mall for the holiday season, turning both the Fire and Metal Zones into a dreamy wonderland … Titled Weaving for a Warm Christmas, the exhibition showcases a seven-metre, completely crocheted Christmas tree, as well as an open-house set up that is covered in acrylic yarn. Everything from the floor and piano to the couch to glasses are given a new identity, with a little touch of Hong Kong.”
