EXHIBITION ARCHIVE

Jacob Dahlgren

On Balance

5 April - 26 May 2014

On Balance is a co-commission with Brighton Festival 2014. The exhibition brings together two works by Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren, which have been reconfigured for Fabrica’s unique space.

 

Heaven is a Place on Earth is a large floor work comprising 713 polished bathroom scales in candy-pop colours, ranging from turquoise and lime to cerise and black.

The Wonderful World of Abstraction takes its sculptural form from 1000’s of metres of multi-coloured ribbon, which are suspended uniformly from a metal frame – to kaleidoscopic effect.

 

Visitors are invited by Dahlgren to step into his pictorial and sculptural world by walking across and through his artworks.

He says, “It’s very important to be part of the work, to walk on it and to make that decision to. At first you don’t know if this is ok, if you are allowed to or not. Then once you see that you can, have permission to, it’s a magical moment.”

 

Acknowledging the sensual pleasure of the material world, and taking delight in the moments of physical and social interaction are recurrent themes in Dahlgren’s work.
