Mish Grigor and collaborators (VIC)


Mish Grigor is co-director of POST, formed in 2003. Their most recent work ‘Ich Nibber Dibber’ was a Sydney Festival/ Campbelltown Arts Centre commission, and in 2018 will be performed at Sydney Opera House and Malthouse Theatre Melbourne. Previously, ‘Oedipus Schmoedipus’, was a joint commission from Belvoir St Theatre and Sydney Festival, and will soon be produced in Cantonese for The Black Box Festival, Hong Kong. Mish’s work ‘The Talk’ has toured extensively, and in 2018 will play at Darebin Arts and Darwin Festival.

An actor and curator, Mish has worked with a range of company across many contexts – from a Noel Coward production with Company B Belvoir to hosting a food fight for the MCA for Branch Nebula. In 2017 she curated ‘Contemporary Contemporary Contemporary’, supported by City of Sydney Council. Mish was a co-director of the Quarterbred ARI, and was co-director of Imperial Panda and Tiny Stadiums.

Lara Thoms recently received a two year Creative Australia Fellowship from the Australia Council for the Arts to explore site-specific and participatory possibilities in contemporary art. Lara was commissioned to create a large scale public work Ultimate Vision: Monuments to Us as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s C3WEST program, a publication of the same title was released by the MCA in 2014.

Other works include ‘Exposition’ for the Melbourne Art Fair with Jason Maling, and ‘The Experts Project’, (2011- 2013) where she spoke with 150 ‘unofficial experts’ as part of Local Positioning Systems at the Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2015 she was part of ‘ Ancient MSG’ at Gertrude Glasshouse in collaboration with Australian and Indonesian Artists. Along with her work in Aphids, her projects have been presented at the Next Wave Festival, Canberra Contemporary, the Australian Centre for Photography and more.

Zoe Scoglio’s work draws upon her training in media arts, voice and body-centred practice to create interdisciplinary, site-responsive and participatory work. Her live and participatory projects explore possibilities for collective engagement, ceremonial encounters and enlivened installations. She is interested in how video can be sculptural, sound can be physical, and how the body can be a site for enacted geomorphologies. She takes a non-hierarchical approach to the mediums, subjects and objects she works with, often combining both animate and inanimate bodies in a relational choreography. She also works in collaboration with communities, with other artists including Tape Projects and Re::Set, as a video designer and as a facilitator for time based artistic practices.

Recent projects include The Sedimentary Collective, Treatment Flightlines, Western Treatment Plant, Melbourne, in 2017, and Shifting Ground, Operadagen Rotterdam, Netherlands, and We are Mountain with Mish Grigor, The Unconformity, Queenstown, Tasmania, in 2016.
