Nikita Gale’s artistic practice is fueled by an interest in inter-object relationships as social and political revelatory mechanisms. Her multidimensional installations, sculptures, and performances often employ familiar items and materials, such as crowd control barricades and sound foam, as social and political revelatory mechanisms. This implicative treatment is underscored by a particular interest in protest culture, soundscapes, and the body's potential as a site for transformative influence. This poster features an image of an anechoic chamber—an insulated space intended to absorb sound waves. The artist uses this to address themes related to amplification and silencing, control, and protection. The image is a part of Gale's ongoing research into the relationship between music, popular culture, and civic dissent.
