Megan Cope has been selected to participate in this year’s Installation Contemporary which takes place in conjunction with Sydney Contemporary.
One of the biggest highlights of the Fair, Installation Contemporary presents Australian and international artists, whose innovative and often site-specific installations range from the handcrafted to the digital.
Untitled (Old Kadibah), 2018
Old Kahibah is an interactive sound sculpture responding to the lands of the Awabakal people, it maps both country and sound vibrations. This is a place of significant alteration and extraction, geological movements and extensive industrial histories.
In this work the artist combines timber and rocks from Awabakal country together with metal strings to enable the elements of country to sing its story of change upon colonisation. Aboriginal artists and performers are invited to activate and create a passage of sound for Old Kahibah.
