Orange pyramid is a real feast for art lovers
9:00am Monday 17th February 2014 in News
A NEW art installation is giving visitors fruity food for thought.
The Soul City (Pyramid of Oranges) exhibition by conceptual artist Roelof Louw opened on Saturday at Modern Art Oxford and is made up of 6,000 oranges, which art lovers are free to take. It will gradually disappear as visitors help themselves to fruit.
Ben Roberts, curator of education and public programming at the museum in Pembroke Street, said: “The exhibition is a great opportunity for people to interact with the work and take away an orange.
“It was the artist’s request that this happened.”
The exhibition runs until Sunday, April 6 – although the oranges may have run out by then.
