Primer: Olivia Jia

9 December 2021

Workplace is pleased to launch its latest episode in the Primer series, where a new work by a gallery artist is unveiled online as a means to explore their wider practice.   Presented here is a new work from Olivia Jia's ongoing book series. Depicting pages of fictional manuscripts as the repositories of unconventional still lifes, Jia recontextualises disparate images from her own archive of collected ephemera.  

 

Through a closer look at untitled (January flowers) and the process behind the creation of the work, this online presentation will focus on the function the artist's extensive archive holds within her practice and her particular interest in the relation between images and knowledge creation.
