Crochet artist AGATA OLEKSIAK (Olek) is currently exhibiting her crocheted pad installation called "Knitting is for Pussies" at the Christopher Henry Gallery. The Polish-born artist showcases an entire crocheted pad including crocheted toilet, art frames, flatiron, television set, bathtub, dildo, etc. on the second floor of the gallery. The "well-knit" exhibit has been extended through May. The Christopher Henry Gallery, a renovated church, is located at 127 Elizabeth Street. 


Olek's other famous work was the crocheted "Charging Bull" on Wall Street. Here's a video of Olek in action.
