Video: The Making of Cinthia Marcelle’s The Family in Disorder (2018)

Posted

Modern Art Oxford is thrilled to present The Family in Disorder: Truth or Dare, the first major UK solo exhibition by Cinthia Marcelle (b. 1974, Belo Horizonte, lives and works in São Paulo). In her new exhibition, Marcelle has transformed the vast Upper Gallery with a newly commissioned two-part installation, The Family in Disorder (2018), which reacts to the architecture of the gallery through two site-responsive structures made from materials that include brick, chalk, boxes of matches and feathers. 

Throughout the course of a week, Marcelle has worked collectively with local artists and art technicians to disrupt, disassemble and reconfigure one of the structures, creating a mirror image of order and chaos across the two galleries, the result of which remains unknown until the exhibition’s public opening. 

Witness the creative process behind the work in our new time-lapse video, which captures the team as they dramatically transform the Upper Gallery. Look out for the smoke grenades at the end! 

The Family in Disorder: Truth or Dare, Cinthia Marcelle opens 10 March and runs until 27 May 2018.

Rage in Order: Hannah Ryggen and Art with Marit Paasche

Posted

Following the opening of Hannah Ryggen: Woven Histories, art historian and Hannah Ryggen expert Marit Paasche came into the gallery to discuss the life and work of the artist.

Ryggen was born in 1894 and died in 1970, leaving behind an impressive array of works, where there is no distinction between life and art.

This talk uncovers the combative attitudes and strong political awareness which were driving forces in Ryggen’s art, as well as exploring the topics and people she addressed in her works.
