Rosie Deacon: Fun Foam Fantastical-Fabulous Fun!
Friday 28 February 2020 to Sunday 31 May 2020 (DAILY event)
Rosie Deacon has transformed the Gallery’s entrance into an exciting new and bright passageway with her exhibition Fun Foam Fantastical Fabulous Fun! This immersive installation incorporates hundreds of kilograms of Fun Foam - a gooey and textured craft material popular in the 1980s. Deacon was gifted this truck load of Fun Foam from a studio neighbour (whose parents own a toy company, and were discarding 800 kilograms of this product). This started Deacon's obsession with the dynamic and versatile material, where she shaped everything from kangaroos, koalas, trees, and Australiana mythical creatures.
Deacon collaborated with local artists from the Riverina Community College The Art Factory, in creating new sculptural elements for the exhibition.
