Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Residence Period: 2018.03.30-2018.05.24
Through this residency, I will develop a series of artist books and wall-based text works. These works will combine excerpts appropriated from cinematic dialogues and pop music lyrics in order to examine pop cultural representations of intersubjective exchanges. Processes of transcription and translation will also be employed to reflect on how new dialogues can be generated through the combination of disparate references.

Olivia Lacey employs processes of transcription and translation to explore the ambiguities, slippages and humour that arise through miscommunications in interpersonal interactions. These explorations are primarily realised through multi-channel video installations and wall-based text installations. Borrowing from the conventions of karaoke lyric videos, her works combine referents appropriated from theoretical texts, pop music lyrics and everyday conversations.
