Olga Cironis transforms everyday objects by covering or embalming them in fabric. Her protective attentions surround her chosen objects with a gentle melancholy. Cironis’ reiteration of covering and stitching slows down our response, inviting touch, and shifting the emphasis in the gallery from object to performance.
Fremantle-based Olga Cironis has exhibited widely in Western Australia and recently in Melbourne with Brigitte Braun Gallery. She is also an experienced teacher and facilitator. Olga is a recipient of a Fremantle Arts Centre residency.
