Biography

Born Sydney, Australia 1959
Lives and works in Sydney, Australia

 

Mikala Dwyer studied sculpture and sound art at Sydney College of the Arts. In 1984, she travelled to London where she studied at Middlesex Polytechnic until 1985.

Dwyer’s practice is developed through a series of evolving projects, connecting personal biography, site-specificity and research into theories of the occult and alchemy. Dwyer works in installation, performance, video and photography. She uses quotidian materials, such as transparent plastics that are manipulated into sculptural volumes.

Her works can be found in leading public collections, such as the National Gallery of Australia (Canberra), Art Gallery of New South Wales (Sydney), Museum of Contemporary of Art (Sydney), National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne), Monash University Museum of Art (Melbourne), Heide Museum of Modern Art (Melbourne), MONA / Museum of Old and New Art (Hobart), UQ Art Museum, The University of Queensland (Brisbane), Auckland City Gallery (Auckland); and prominent private and corporate collections.
