The street is a space where art thrives, and a place where artists can shape the public aesthetic. Olek, a sculptor whose
medium is crochet, and Swoon, a mixed media artist, disrupt daily life with work that creates wonder, emotion, and humor. Equally at home in museums and galleries, both artists also create installations that challenge the formats of traditional art spaces, and push the boundaries of contemporary art.
