Overview

Oxford Arts Factory has just announced its new 2019 curators for its arts space, The Cube. Orson Heidrich and Jarryd Lynagh of Signal will be putting on monthly shows, revamping The Cube into an art space to focus more on installation, sculpture and physical art works within the bigger music venue.

The first one features work by Rosie Deacon, who's shown around Australia and the UK, and recently created the installation Fashion Forest Seduction as part of this year's Mona Foma. Deacon works with sculpture and installation to "engage with the spectacle of obsession and realms of the absurd". Her technicolour immersive work plays with the surreal and the real, with layered, lush forms and references to flora and fauna remembered from a childhood in rural New South Wales.

It will open with a special opening party this Wednesday, April 3 from 6pm — the first of a series of events that will open each new installation. Signal has been invited to curate the space for a year, including takeovers from other groups. Watch this space for future events.

Rosie Deacon's work at The Cube will run until 20 April.
