When Poland-born artist Agata Olek likes it, she puts a sweater on it. First it was the famed Wall Street Bull that she covered in crochet; now it's an entire apartment within NYC's Christopher Henry Gallery. And we mean entire: crocheted toilet, crocheted dildo, and crocheted version of her boyfriend's STD results and all. Says Olek on her website, "Knitting is for pus***" Ah, ain't art grand?
