To March 29 Echo Chambers: Art and Endless Reflections. This ambitious exhibition brings together contemporary Australian artists who are working with mirrors, mirrored surfaces and reflections as the subject and materials of their work, transforming three separate gallery spaces across Deakin University, into a series of dizzying spatial encounters. Artists include Chris Bond, Leslie Eastman, Yanni Florence, Carlo Golin, Justine Khamara, Gian Manik, Kent Morris, Nike Savvas, Linda Tegg, Ebony Truscott, Lyndal Walker, Meng-Yu Yan and others. This project seeks to engage with audience’s increasing desire to see images of themselves reflected in exhibitions and explores how contemporary culture and social media, often mirrors, duplicates and doubles itself. Key historical examples will frame the exhibition inviting the viewer to speculate on what they see and how our experiences of representation have changed over time.

To May 4 opening the 2019 exhibition calendar is artist Cyrus Tang who is the latest addition to the Ten Cubed 2 Collection. Ten Cubed began collecting Tang in 2016 with the acquisition of the Children’s Encyclopaedia series and has continued to collect her photographic and sculptural works throughout 2017 and 2018. Tang is a Melbourne-based artist who was born in Hong Kong and moved to Australia in 2003. She works with photomedia, mixed-media, video and installation. Her practice explores the beauty of various materials by incorporating permanent and ephemeral materials like clay, ash, water, steam and human hair, which develop a visual representation reflecting on the notion of nostalgia, memory and absence. Subtly traversing across the boundary between the past and the present, Tang’s works capture the transition from disappearance into remembrance and fantasy which was described by the artist herself as ‘a phantasmic site of loss’. Cyrus Tang is currently represented by ARC ONE Gallery, Melbourne.
