Artist Mel O’Callaghan presents a large scale performance and floor-work installation at Barangaroo and Carriageworks for Sydney Contemporary, 2018. Bold, monumental lines and arcs dash across the ground of the two sites in a coordinated composition — at once a language and musical score written through the breath and body.
