"Red velvet was always just for the cardinals and the royals, and I brought it back to the public."
Olga Cironis' quote in the feature article in Artist Profile magazine (edition 59)* is accompanied by a truly arresting portrait photograph of Olga Cironis in customary 'cammo' t-shirt by Christophe Canato. The feature article includes other full page images by Canato and Olga's recent installation work 'Forest of Voices' (2020) at PICA by Robert Frith; with words by Louella Hayes.
Louella writes: 'Cironis is someone who brims with conversation, stories and anecdotes. Nothing she says is uninteresting. She has spent her life enquiring, engaging in dialogue and looking for deeper meaning in the everyday... Her work always includes the voice of the other; they consider the audience and are completed by participation and response. Connection is key.'
The article comes at a time just after Olga's major installation work at PICA, as a solo show opened for the Perth Festival at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery (UWA) and when Art Collective WA launches a 160 page monograph on Olga's 30 year art career - 'The Space Between Us', alongside her solo exhibition of the same name.
Purchase the monograph from Art Collective WA. RRP $60 +PP.
