The Goldie’s alive! Once teeming with unique wildlife and flora, the Gold Coast wetlands were reshaped by development.
Now, every time it floods, inland from the beach, the Coast attempts to turn back into a swamp, with submerged lowlands reminding us what, beneath the layers of glass, concrete and steel, always was and always will be here. Join us for Orchid House, a story told by a cohort of selected non-human others – orchids, ferns, lilies and palms – those rare, endangered and extinct local species who once populated The Great Swamp, and whose return is written on the scent of rain.

Danni Zuvela is a Gold Coast-based artist, writer and curator. Her practice takes non-human others as subjects, using earth-based knowledge to present a 'more-than-human' perspective, often through the prism of sound and listening. In 2020 Danni’s work centres on ecology, disability, community memory and experimental linguistics, in installation and lecture-performance.
