Mikala Dwyer in collaboration with composer James Hayes presents Ode to the ʻōʻō a sound and sculptural work in the Gertrude Glasshouse space. Carceral-like architectures of animal captivity are suggested through the use of sound. Expanding on the artist’s recent investigations into apparitions, this new body of work explores ideas of reanimation and extinction.
