Olivia Lacey employs processes of transcription and translation to explore the ambiguities, slippages or humour that can arise in interpersonal interactions. Her works combine referents appropriated from art historical texts, pop music lyrics and everyday conversations in order to examine romantic dialogue as an intersubjective space of exchange. These explorations are primarily realised as multi- channel video works and wall-based text installations. She frequently employs party decorations, disco lighting and reflective materials in order to evoke the immersive spaces of karaoke rooms. Lacey graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Queensland University of Technology in 2017. In 2018, she completed a residency with 3331 Arts Chiyoda in Tokyo. Recent group exhibitions include Future Proof (2018), Boxcopy Contemporary Art Space; Hatched: National Graduate Show (2018), Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts; and Maybe We Could Meet Again (2018), 3331 Arts Chiyoda.
