Signal — By Orson Heidrich and Jarryd Lynagh
Signal came to part via a conjoined curatorial effort of Jarryd Lynagh and Orson Heidrich in December of 2018 in which they combined 5 emerging artist to form a establish, commerical exhibition in chippendale’s DownUnder space. Drawing on both heidrich and lynagh’s installation and curatorial knowledge the show boasted professional level installation and fully realised contemporary rationales to ground the works together. Now the groups focuses on spaces and exhibitions around Sydney to initiate art within the Sydney context, at emerging, mid-stage and established art levels.
Cube Project / 2019 -2020
Presented By Signal
| In response to building a site-specific public program for The Cube space at the Oxford Arts Factory, we propose a balanced and diverse schedule of practitioners bridging across, installation, performance, photo media, sculpture, and painting. With consideration to the fact that Oxford Art Factory’s primary functions are being a live music venue and bar, the program offers curated art viewings that operate as a complimentary experience to these focuses. Our curatorial practice bases itself in the physical and the tangible, using it as a currency in contemporary practice to examine and exhibit artists who have shifted away from the foundational practices into working methods based in the 3D, multimedia and installation fields. With a focus on transitional forms, the decision making and evolution of ideas question the motives of such change and what is being sought at the intersection of artistic mediums. As a space situated between two bars and two live music stages, these elements will have an unavoidable influence on the relationship between the viewers and the installations and so we have identified a number of key themes the program will orbit as to best compliment, enhance and intrigue. Inter-activity, kineticism, scale and visual presence will form the foundational criteria for our proposed ideas and artists. |
DownUnder Project / 2018
Presented By Signal
| Bridging across installation, sculpture and expanded photography the show ‘Signal’ bases itself in the physical and the tangible, using it as a currency in contemporary practice. Curated by Jarryd Lynagh and Orson Heidrich, the show examines artists who have shifted away from their foundation in two-dimensional practices into working methods based in sculpture, multimedia and installation; with the genesis of the works being mainly rooted in painting and photographic practices. Succinct choices in materials draw upon frameworks of visual association with the language of materiality being used, in this instance, to create works of a post figurative nature. Connected either conceptually or physically to their former practice, processes of decision making and evolution, inevitably lead us to transitional forms which question the motives of such change and what is being sought at the intersection of artistic mediums. |
