Art on show in Brighton & Hove and Sussex
This summer Fabrica presents My Crazy Family Golf, a participative project made by Lisa Watts and her father, Gordon Watts (referred to as ‘Dad’), including the short film, Dad Cares.
Together Lisa Watts & Dad have created a series of crazy golf holes, each including audio recordings of the family. We invite you to play five holes of crazy golf with a handmade golf club and a scorecard to complete, as well as additional tabletop games.
My Crazy Family Golf tells Dad’s story of being the primary carer for his wife (Lisa’s Mum) for the majority of her adult life. Her complex mental illness has had profound effects on all the family and their relationships with each other. Mum’s complex mental illness has had profound effects on all the family and their relationships with each other. At the time of making the work Lisa’s mum entered residential care and this project grew from Lisa and Dad’s mutual desire to build something new to bring them closer.
Fun and poignant, My Crazy Family Golf asks us to reflect on our own family relationships and the nature of care.
We also have a series of exciting events happening throughout the summer and beyond. Find out more here.
