In parallel, artist Samuel Blackwood will post to the BOOKSHOP Twitter account – bookshop_ngca. Then on the 16 January artist Stacey Davidson will respond to their entries in print, creating a Risograph publication using Dunbar and Blackwood’s posts.
Olivia Dunbar (b. 1988, Vancouver, Canada) received an MFA from the Piet Zwart Institute and is a current resident at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten. In her work there is a vernacular understanding of composition – how things can be made unmade and excavated in order to be sensed in real time. Working across diverse media, Dunbar’s studio practice is context based and develops formal strategies such as replacement to navigate the when and why of identification. Recent presentations include act like u don’t know at c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e, Brussels, and read the room, you’ve got to at SALTS, Basel. Dunbar currently lives and works in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
