Olivia Lacey

Residence plan
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.

Artist profile
1) BFA (Hons) in Visual Arts, Queensland University of Technology, 2017.
2) "Another Way Up", Queensland University of Technology, 2017.
3) "In the End...", Jugglers Art Space, 2016.

Base of activity: Brisbane, Australia
Media Used: Text, Moving Image

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.
