No Limit in Borås (about an hour’s drive east of Gothenburg) is an outdoor art event inviting artists from around the world to participate in turning public spaces into an outdoor exhibition. The event is about all kinds of street art, from large scale murals to street art sculptures and installations. No Limit first saw the world in September 2014.
In September this year the colourful festival will be held again (September 3-6, 2015).
OLEK, born Agata Oleksiak in Poland
OLEK, born Agata Oleksiak in Poland in 1978, will be included in the line up this year. OLEK currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
With the old fashioned technique of crocheting, OLEK has taken the ephemeral medium of yarn to express everyday occurrences, inspirations and hopes to create a metaphor for the complexity and interconnectedness of our body and psychological processes.
OLEK’s art explores sexuality, feminist ideals and the evolution of communication through colours, conceptual exploration and meticulous detail. OLEK consistently pushes the boundaries between fashion, art, crafts and public art, fluidly combining the sculptural and the fanciful.
“We have a strong line up of artists this year. OLEK is really top notch in the street art world and I´m looking forward to seeing her in Borås. I´m sure her work will be a really appreciated element during the festival. It feels really good to finally be able to roll out our artist list as I know many have been curious for a long long time”, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.
