Paulina Olowska: Her Hauntology Book Launch

Paulina Olowska

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to announce the launch of Paulina Olowska's book Her Hauntology, on the occasion of her solo exhibition at Kistefos Museum in Norway.

Her Hauntology explores the artist's own fertile exploration into Slavic mythology and imagery, the female gaze and the concept of Hauntology; which refers to the recurrence of elements from the social or cultural past as in the manner of a ghost or spectre.

Olowska's realist paintings, drawings, and collages use imagery from Eastern European and American popular culture creating cross-cultural reference and asserting Olowska's enduring position of reinterpreting modernism.
