Olivia Webb (b. 1988) lives in Wellington, New Zealand where she teaches singing and is studying toward her PhD in Art & Design. Webb’s art practice explores our experience of architectural and social space through video, performance and multi-channel sound installations.
Her works utilise the human voice, particularly in song, as a way of revealing and ushering forth silent traditions, histories and experiences embodied in space and place.
Webb has performed and exhibited internationally as an artist and vocalist, and enjoys singing early polyphonic music with her local choir each week. Recent exhibitions and commissions include: Lapides Vivi (2016) Edinburgh Art Festival, UK; Miserere Mei (2016) Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, NZ; The Choir of the Self (2016) The Audio Foundation, NZ; In Paradisum (2015) Oceanic Performance Biennial, Cook Islands; Scale (2015) Te Tuhi Art Gallery, NZ; Passage (2015) Festival of Sonic Arts, NZ.
