Alira Callaghan is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice explores the way we shape and are shaped by our interactions with objects, things, and materials (o/t/m). Working across installation, sculpture, participatory events and performance, Callaghan’s practice generates encounters that work towards problematising preconceived ideas of objects, things, and materials often employing concepts of play, humour and curiosity. Having graduated with a Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) (Hons) from Curtin University in 2013, she is now undertaking a practice-led PhD that uses creative practice to critique certain nonanthropocentric philosophical discourses surrounding relationships with objects.
