Olga Balema @ Camden Art Centre

21 May 2021 - 29 August 2021

The new floor-based work plays with the idea of a flat sculpture. It unfolds from a series of pixelated images of a domestic carpet, laid out in a grid-like arrangement and printed on billboard material. A large sheet of plastic has been worked on by hand and foot, in the studio, outside and on the computer; as a whole, and in pieces.

The work comes out of Olga Balema’s thinking around meaning as a function of lived time, and aligns with a definition of art that is primarily concerned with communicating in terms of its integrity as a formal production. Balema’s sculptures are often unwieldy and aesthetically demanding, and challenge conventions of legibility within structures and mechanisms that accompany the making and consuming of exhibitions.
