1984 · LVIV

Olga Balema lives and works in Berlin and Amsterdam. In her works, she traces human beings’ ambivalent relationship with their environment: Using sculptural fragments and gestures, she reflects on the ongoing double bind that we confront in the production of food and our eating habits. Her notion of the body questions philosophical schisms between the concepts of object and subject, while also accounting for feminist or technologically motivated notions of the body.
