Artists / Olivia Plender


Olivia Plender was commissioned to produce 'The Evil Genius' as part of her ongoing comic book series as part of 'Romantic Detachment' (2004)

Olivia also hosted an ‘in conversation’ talk with Ken Russell at Rusland Village Hall disussing the subject of ‘genius’ as part of 'Cumbriana Proof' (2005).

Historical research is at the core of Olivia Plender's practice. Her works investigate idiosyncratic pockets of forgotten history that sit awkwardly with the way we live now.
