It’s not over ‘til it’s over is a carousel with a solitary chair replacing the colorful herd of horses that normally populate these festive carnival rides. Olivier has created a reflective interpretation of a childhood experience, inviting a quiet, contemplative and singular interaction with a carefully constructed, dreamlike installation. The viewer is invited to step up, take a seat, and patiently observe their changing view as they slowly revolve clockwise around a center point.
