Laetitia Olivier-Gargano

For NotFair 2021, Laetitia Olivier-Gargano has created a series of wall hanging sculptures, titled ‘SPLAT PACKS’. Combining “hyper-surrealistic” resin cast sculptures of food with objects and domestic items, her works are assembled into bento-box style collages. Delicately painted plastic forms look good enough to eat, but utterly uncanny in their presentation. Beginning with the ‘2020 Meal set’ as a way to metaphorically serve up the year that was, Olivier-Gargano’s sculptures are a playful depiction of her thoughts, memories and experiences.  Olivier-Gargano is currently based in Melbourne. She graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from Monash University. Her work has been exhibited nationally at institutions such as Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Cement Fondu and UNSW galleries. Olivier-Gargano’s recent work consists of sculpture, stop-motion animation and works on paper.
