Artist and spatial designer Emily O’Hara has an interdisciplinary practice fluctuating between performance, object, sculpture, photography and moving image. Her work circulates around questions of language, silence and ineffability in relation to mourning, the maternal, otherness and urban ruins. A keen focus on temporality and extended duration underpins her spatial practice, which weaves between theatre based scenography, film, furniture and object making, and performance with installation. Emily teaches in AUT’s School of Art + Design and completed her PhD in 2018.
