I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which I live and practice, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. I pay my respects to the elders past, present and emerging. Always Was, Always Will Be, Aboriginal Land.

Through a multidisciplinary practice spanning photography, printmaking, and textiles, Olga Svyatova's work addresses the complex links between memory, relationships, and identity. Svyatova appropriates their own personal experience of different cultures and histories in order to compel viewers to reflect on the connections that sustain our lives. Moving from Russia where they grew up, to Thailand, and now based on Gadigal Land (Sydney), Svyatova's experience of cultural, geographic, and personal journeying drives their practice.
