Mikala Dwyer

Mikala Dwyer creates objects and installations that are both playful and provocative, re-imagining familiar materials and what they say to us about the world in which we live.

Her highly engaging sculptures explore ideas about shelter, childhood play, modernist design and the relationship between people and objects.

Often beguiling in their colour and profusion, her works incorporate raw materials and found objects in inventive and unexpected ways that transform their architectural settings.

For A shape of thought Dwyer co-opts both the everyday and the fabulous to transform four of our contemporary galleries – floating 150 silver balloons high above the gallery floor, installing an elaborate suspension of fabric shapes held aloft by stockings, and building a large circular sculptural gathering that includes crystal-like Perspex structures.
