This co-commission by Fabrica and Brighton Festival is part of Out of the Blue, a collaborative project involving six organisations in Brighton & Hove and Amiens (France), funded by the Interreg IVa Channel programme of cross-border collaboration.
This new work is the first in a series of three exhibitions, as part of this programme, taking place at Fabrica, Royal Pavilion (Regency Colour, 15 June – 13 October, 2013) and Hove Museum (Into the Blue, 6 July 2013 – 21 January, 2014). Fabrica has worked with Kaarina before in 2003 when she created the piece Beyond Reach as part of the exhibition Cast Off.
