We honour and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the traditional custodians of Country. Always Was, Always Will Be Aboriginal Land.
COCHLEA, a 15-metre inflatable inner ear and performance-installation amplifying voices from the frontlines of gender.
Step inside the organ of listening and balance, an intimate space and symbol of our shared humanity.
COCHLEA creates an interactive spatial and audio installation that challenges the silencing of gender minorities by amplifying their voice, and in doing so, pushes against harmful stereotypes and cultural norms.
