For her exhibition at 45cbm, Policarpo will present a new multi­-channel sound piece, accompanied by earthen plaster assemblages of objects and detritus (found on site) that operate both as speakers and vessels, what she refers to as drunk sirens. The space becomes a stage upon which a scene unravels; a disembodied voice jostles to be heard over a litany of visual and aural noise.
