Teeth Hide

Mira Oosterweghel


18 May 2023–10 June 2023

Teeth Hide is a new text and sculpture work created for the KINGS’ driveway and informed by Mira’s research into learning and language.

Grimy corrugated flowers and a phallic butterfly dangle from the sky. Shiny leather hides hang off bricks. Words t-e-e-t-h, t-o-n-g-u-e and g-u-t-t-u-r-a-l dance in diamantés and pearls.

In parallel to the exhibition, Mira is also running a sculpture workshop series at Yarra Youth Centre.
