Biography

Olivia Mc Gilchrist is a Jamaican-French visual artist who juxtaposes parallel realities through photographs, multimedia installations and more recently with Virtual Reality. Elements of the tropical picturesque are re-appropriated and remapped to evoke the complexity of the Caribbean’s hybrid identities and to question the role of racial, social and gender based categorization, classification and discrimination across contemporary cultures.

Artistic project : Jonkonnu / Gens inconnus 

A cube-shaped pine box with decorative engravings atop a wooden structure houses an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset in which the viewer interacts with a virtual video installation of a traditional Jamaica Carnival with ‘Jonkonnu’ performers. As the viewer puts on the Oculus Rift, she enters a 3D space in which two perspectives of this Carnival performance are blended and juxtaposed across the three virtual gallery screens. In this updated version, the viewer is be able to play and interact with several types of sounds: building their own soundtrack for a unique user experience.
