Olana Light

Fly Like a Butterfly (2023)

Olana Light's practice moves between wearable sculpture, performance, installation and the moving image. She reflects the multiplicities of identity and a never-ending pursuit of belonging that are close to her heart. Light strives to make art more accessible to local communities and to reach a wider audience of “everyday” people and passers-by, many of whom do not have regular access to the arts. Her street performances are aimed at taking art out to the public. She seeks to create a dialogue for change: about nature and our relationship with it; about who we are; and about why art is and should be for everyone to access.
