Type: Event

Location: Fabrica

Entry: Free Entry

Event Date: 09/10/2021

End Date: 28/11/2021

This Autumn come and explore extremity and diversity, as we invite audiences to experience work of an extremely large scale and that at a tiny intimate size. This juxtaposition of the artists’ works will offer visitors a playful ‘sizeshifting’ experience – at first loomed over by one work and then towering over the other. In this highly anticipated exhibition, the artworks position the visitor as the ‘norm’ in the room. Playing with the norms of human scale, looking beyond the norms of human experience and questioning the cultural norms in current exhibition making. Carys Reilly’s series includes psychologically charged sculptures, though tiny, they powerfully convey bodily intimacy and interiority. In contrast, Simon Le Boggit’s expansive video installation, Even Giants Have to Bend, fills Fabrica's 10 metre high ceiling with the movement and sound of huge trees in a strong wind, immersing the viewers below it.
