We are delighted to announce our participation in this year's edition of Felix Art Fair, showing new works by artist superorganism Øleg&Kaśka. The 2024 edition of the fair takes place at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, continuing the fair's intimate ethos of collaboration and community.

Øleg&Kaśka is a collective superorganism founded in the summer of 2018. They graduated from The University of The Arts in Poznań (Poland) in 2020 (MFA). They challenge the classic understanding of the artist as an individual by the figure of the quasi-artist, androgynous Øleg&Kaśka. They create multi-layered installations, working with different mediums such as painting, sculpture, video or fragrance to create immersive environments in which the audience may dwell and reflect. Their works are grounded in speculative strategies, engendering unexpected connections between pasts and presents, constructing what they call ‘performative sceneries’.

Akin to the emblem book Atalanta Fugiens, published in 1617, the paintings and drawings of Øleg&Kaśka portray a constellation of marginalised subjects, saying goodbye to the heroic male protagonist. As the atemporality of many fairy tales (once upon a time…) is questioned, the characters of Øleg&Kaśka inhabit the fuzzy time that constantly switches between the present and the past. In their works, fantasy is a disruptive return to childhood, understood as a realm of multiple possibilities for the past-present-future and as a deviation from normative temporalities.

Their works have been exhibited at ISHO Pavilion, Timisoara (RO); Suprainfinit Gallery, Bucharest (RO); Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw (PL), MoMA, Warsaw (PL), :SKALA Gallery, Poznan (PL), Gdansk City Gallery, Gdansk (PL), Belinskej Model, Prague (CZ), Spread Museum, Entrevaux (FR), Sonneundsolche, Düsseldorf (DE), and others.
