OLIVIA STRANGE

Olivia Strange’s multi-disciplinary practice spans drawing, painting, installation, sculpture and sound/moving image. She makes multimedia installations often using found objects and materials, poetry, sound & video projection. The works are characterized by a layered narrative that aims to surface queer experience. Themes of ‘paradise’ and ‘escape’ are explored in the work through which aims to probe at the roots of oppressive normative ideals, offering alternative languages for distortion, desire, sexuality, fantasy and power-play. The work both employs and subverts traditional material processes and making methods to portray an alternative empowering image of female subjectivity in an eroticised state whilst refuting binary ideals of ‘femininity' and womxnhood.
