Olivia Aguiar is an emerging artist born, raised and working in Tkaronto. Central to her work is the abandoned fishing net (the "ghost net") a precarious oppositional structure that acts doubly as a shelter and entrapment. Through painting, digital and craft mediums, Olivia dissects and intertwines her body amongst digital and underwater motifs to meditate on the ghost net as a metaphor for the violence and refuge implicit in digital corporeality. Olivia is in her final year at OCAD University, acquiring her BFA in Drawing and Painting with a minor in Gender and Sexuality.
