“Kitchen Space is pleased to announce Soul Kitchen, a site responsive exhibition from Karolina Gnatowski.
Chicago, IL October 5 2014– Kitchen Space is pleased to continue its programming with new work from fiber artist Karolina Gnatowski. The exhibition will continue through November 2nd.
Gnatowski’s no-bullshit attitude can perhaps be best seen in her work, and in the work in Soul Kitchen in particular. Gnatowski has built this how around the fact that it is taking place in a kitchen. In a way that indicts the viewers to make the work and it’s underpinnings activate. Soul Kitchen gets its name from a song by The Doors. Gnatowski has once again and rather acutely riffed work in a style synonymous with a 70s Los Angeles rock legacy. Woven décor- macramé and the like typify a 1970s kitchen, but Gnatowski has raised the stakes. A once open kitchen has given way to an overbearing LA sunset silent windchime. And perhaps what’s left to consider is the nuanced aspects of life in a by-gone era becoming revitalized, and revealing to us a less nuanced now.
Karolina Gnatowski invites you all to Kitchen Space for morning beers the way “Jim was known to do”. Sunday, October 5th & November 2nd from 9am-12pm.
