Journeys From An Absent Present to a Lost Past

Mohamad Hafez
In partnership with Brighton Festival, Fabrica presents A series of works by the Syrian born, US-based architect and artist Mohamad Hafez , shown for the first time in the UK. These Intricate dioramas of streetscapes and rooms of Damascus reflect on the devastation of the city during the Syrian war.  Strongly nostalgic and politically charged they capture the magnitude of the devastation and poignantly expose the fragility of human life.

My Crazy Family Golf

Lisa Watts

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.  Together they have created a series of crazy golf holes, each including audio recordings of the family made during Dad’s years of caring.  The golf course holes also act as playful sculptural objects in their own right, incorporating elements such as domestic carpet and household objects.
