Olivia Johnston


Olivia Johnston is a queer and chronically ill artist living in Ottawa, Canada. Her visual arts practice consists of two core facets: one being an exploration of chronic illness and trauma, the other being an exploration of sacredness and its role in contemporary life. She is interested in exploring questions about images, gender, the body, the self, beauty, illness, memory, and what it means to be human. Johnston’s practice includes lens-based imagery, site-specific installation, and sculpture; her work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally. Community work and collaboration play a significant role in her practice.
