We’re excited to welcome you back to Fabrica for At Home in the Water by Vanessa Daws.

This autumn Fabrica presents a new artwork by Dublin-based artist Vanessa Daws. In this immersive artwork visitors are offered a unique insight into long-distance swimming and our swimming heritage.

Meshing together the swimmer’s inward monologue, the physical sensation of the water and the challenge of the open water endurance swim, the artwork invites us to wonder what strange fascination the sea has for us, why we choose to submerge ourselves in it and why we feel compelled to try to navigate it.

Admission free, donations welcome. No booking necessary. 15 October – 27 November
