Handcrafted Artful Embroideries of Everyday Products by Alicja Kozłowska


Polish artist Alicja Kozłowska has always been addicted to handicrafts. “From an early age I experimented with fabric; learning and testing techniques such as crochet and patchwork.”

Since 2017 she’s combined that love of craft with a fascination with pop art to create Embroidered Ordinariness, a set of felt and embroidery versions of mass-produced items. Kozłowska is inspired by Andy Warhol and her Warholesque felt banana skin sculpture was the first piece she exhibited in a gallery.


“I also use it in my performances in shops and museums, where I surprise the public by placing my sculptures in crowded areas and watching for people’s reactions.” Her goal is to create sculptures that show “art is contained in even the most obvious objects”.
