Olivia Koh makes works where the relationship between the text and the image rearticulates historical and cultural references. She co-organises 'recess' with Kate Meakin, an online platform for moving-image works. (recess.net.au) She is a recipient of the NAVA Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship (2016-18) and will undertake a residency with Green Papaya Art Projects in Manila, the Philippines.

This project is supported by the Yarra City Council for the Arts. Exhibition documentation by Christo Crocker.
