Olaf Nicolai’s work is conceptual in nature and often characterized by (socio)political references, in which multiple antipodal aspects (socialist and capitalist, hedonist and idealist) merge and overlap. Aspects such as production processes and the generation of commodities are reflected in his work as well as the realm of aesthetics and the role of the observer, i.e. participant.
In the exhibition WHY WOMEN LIKE TO BUY TEXTILES THAT FEEL NICE Galerie EIGEN + ART presents two works by Olaf Nicolai consisting of objects from a private interior at the same time arranged for representation: a curtain and two embroidered images.

The exhibition runs until May 1st, 2011.
