Potato Cellar Installation

Title

Potato Cellar Installation

Description

Olga Balema is a BFA sculpture student at the University of Iowa. She often makes work in which animals or objects infest a space, sometimes subtly, sometimes colonizing it in obvious ways. She is interested in things that exist below the surface, away from sight. Here, potatoes emerge from the crawl space under a University building into a basement room where the concrete floor has disappeared beneath a layer of earth, and the potatoes themselves suffer from yarn growths.
