Olga Klosowski is constantly searching for new ways of commemorating history. Her work uses found objects in two and three-dimensional forms to alter conventional ways of recording the past. There is a constant nod to the home and the spaces we occupy and what we leave behind where ever it may be. Klosowski includes her passion for architecture, furniture and design into her contemporary art practice.
