CONTRIBUTORS /// Olivia Ahn
Olivia Ahn is engaged in an inter-disciplinary research, design, and artistic practice that emerges from her interests across architecture, art, and queer theory. Ahn’s current work reflects her desires to both disrupt and unravel the collective narrative written by the politics of history, sexuality, and space within domesticity. Her examination of domestic archetypes and family structures are influenced by her beliefs that classifications of gender and typologies of architecture have created preconceived notions that become symptomatic in our societal understandings of them. Evoking the tensions that reside unseen, Ahn’s work locates the inherent relationships that underwrite convention in order to provide the disruption necessary towards their de-narrativization.
