Strange Relations attempts to interrogate 'norms'
within the contemporary art world and society, through exhibition making - a subject that both Outside In
and Fabrica have each explored for some time.
This focus set the parameters for the selection of the artists' works which are two extremely different immersive encounters.
These themes will also be explored through a programme of talks and activities designed to engage a broad audience, including, young people on half term holiday, older people and those with a range of disabilities as well as artists, other arts professionals and regular gallery goers.
Liz Whitehead, Director, Fabrica said:
"The works play with the scale of our unique gallery spaces and positions 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 are key themes in the exhibition."
Marc Steene, Director, Outside In added:
"In many ways Outside In's artists are the strange relation to the wider art world, creators making their work despite the barriers they address, speaking honestly and without fear.
"'Strange Relations' is the captivating juxtaposition of two artists' work, Carys Reilly's small intimate objects and Simon Le Boggit's large atmospheric projection.
"Each deeply personal, powerfully evocative and resonant art created for a personal purpose that can communicate beyond its maker."
Strange Relations at Fabrica 40 Duke Street, Brighton, until 28 November 2021, Wed-Sun 12-6pm. Closed Mon & Tuesdays.
