Paulina Olowska

JRP|RINGIER

Paulina Olowska’s paintings, collages, and knitted works explore Communist Poland’s fascination with Western consumerism and celebrates the spirit of what Polish writer Leopold Tyrmand called the “Applied Fantastic,” or the vernacular recreations of Western styles--while also paying tribute to American Pattern and Decoration art of the 1970s. This first overview includes an interview with Adam Szymczyk and an essay by Jan Verwoert.

Edited by Lionel Bovier. Text by Adam Szymczyk, Jan Verwoert.
