The Family in Disorder documents the first major UK solo exhibition by Cinthia Marcelle, one of Brazil's most significant contemporary artists, at Modern Art Oxford, with new essays by art historians Michael Asbury and Isobel Whitelegg, and exhibition curator Stephanie Straine. Marcelle's powerful installation, performance, and moving image practice questions notions of social inequality and hierarchy, and explores themes of labour, materiality and the environment. The Family in Disorder (2018) was a new installation composed of two site-responsive and strikingly different structures across separate galleries, which together produced a mirror image of chaos and order. The work was created using a radical and unconventional process, employed by Marcelle for the first time within this exhibition. Destabilising the expectation of creative authorship in favour of collective decision-making, the result was a radical and totally unexpected intervention. Includes 3 newly commissioned art historical essays by Michael Asbury, Stephanie Straine and Isobel Whitelegg. These essays contextualise the work and Marcelle's wider practice in relation to its political backdrop of social inequality and collective protest movements.
