Olivia’s practice is self-reflexive and examines themes surrounding identity, sex, queerness and the interconnectedness of the emotional state and trauma. A large portion of her work speaks to transgenerational trauma, the church, her Polish background and Parts Psychology. Parts Psychology is also known as parts-work-therapy or integrated family systems, which goal is achieving trauma resolution by recognising disowned parts, usually younger parts and sub-personalities, by giving these parts a voice. Currently there’s a larger focus on liberation within Olivia’s experiences with queerness and sex. All of Olivia’s works are manipulated through layers of erasure and distortion.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
