about the exhibition

This major solo exhibition of respected Australian artist Mikala Dwyer included recent and newly created work, including several made especially for the exhibition.

Well-known for her installation work utilising everyday objects such as nail polish, PVC tubing, stockings and mirrors, Dwyer constructs site-specific works that engage with her audience. Dwyer, who has exhibited widely in Australia and abroad, was one of four artists in the inaugural Primavera: Young Australian Artists at the MCA in 1992.

This exhibition presented a range of Dwyer’s work spanning eight years. Curator of the exhibition, Linda Michael said 'Dwyer’s works are composed of many parts and change with each installation according to the architecture of the space – melding into one another, losing some parts, adding others. Interacting with the gallery’s architecture, Dwyer reveals hidden cavities behind the gallery walls, tunes-in to the static of TV and radio, props up the ceiling or bandages the floor, transforming a fixed, solid architecture into one that is fragile and permeable.’

This project was made possible by the generous support of MCA Ambassadors.
