Each year Fabrica makes its space available to artists to test new ground in their practice, opening up the possibility to use the space in imaginative ways and experiment with new ways of working.
This March Fabrica is hosting a work-in-progress by artist, Raquel Meseguer that explores collective acts of rest, to challenge the etiquette of our public spaces and vertical dominance. In her new piece the audience are asked to lie down to hear verbatim stories about people’s attempts to rest in public.
The workshop sessions take place on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th March where you will be invited to partake in the subversive act of lying down, to hear stories that bridge difference and distance. Expect low tech experiments, and an audio journey of fragile beauty.
On Thursday 5th March Raquel will present a conversation with Professor Mick Thacker in which they will explore what it is to spectate, to witness, to listen or to be present with people’s words and stories from the vantage of their own practice and research. Raquel has developed the piece with blind and partially sighted people in mind and is interested in them attending the event.
