Old Kahibah

Installation Contemporary
Sydney Contemporary, Carriageworks
12 – 16 September 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.
