MEDIA RELEASE for immediate release 

MIC Toi Rerehiko presents 

Mirror Me

MIC Toi Rerehiko will be displaying breathtaking new work from renowned performance artist Shona McCullagh.

Mirror Me is an interactive work by New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate filmmaker and award winning choreographer Shona McCullagh.  The work has been created in collaboration with multimedia artist Michael Hodgson (from electronic dub band Pitch Black) and composer John Gibson.  McCullagh’s CNZ Choreographic Fellowship allowed her to join forces with Hodgson to explore interactive software and its relationship with the moving body. A collection of scenes were created which culminated in a series of installations that the artists now improvise with. Passionate about the body’s ability to communicate in ways words cannot, McCullagh’s shift towards moving installations provides an opportunity for the audience to become the work itself. Michael Hodgson and John Gibson provide the intriguing soundscape to the work, which audiences will move to and be moved by.


This installation will be housed in Gallery One at MIC Toi Rerehiko, it will be a site-specific space for the audience to play in.  McCullagh and Hodgson have developed four installations on the theme of the self being welcomed and translated into an ever-changing new art work. The screens are only activated by human presence. Without the audience, this art barely exists - they act as a vital trigger for the screen based works which offer a relationship with the viewer: a mirror, of sorts. Mirror Me also premieres the launch of the first of McCullagh’s limited edition interactive art works and screenings of her latest short film, Mondo Nuovo.
