Art at BRIGHTON FESTIVAL: Jacob Dahlgren – On Balance ** 3-25 May 2014 ** Fabrica, Brighton

Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren has created two interactive works that celebrate the aesthetic of the mass-produced object. Heaven is a Place on Earth and The Wonderful World of Abstraction use more than 700 sets of bathroom scales and thousands of metres of ribbon to highlight the pervasive sensuality of low-cost but highly designed objects. Visitors will be able to touch, move through and walk across the works, and this interactive potential will be explored further in a series of choreographed public performances by Charles Linehan commissioned by Fabrica in collaboration with South East Dance. Dahlgren’s work raises questions about our impact upon the environment, for us all as domestic consumers and for Fabrica and the Festival as art commissioners. They will be debated as part of All Costs Considered on Tue 20 May, 8pm.
