From July 8, 2017 to August 28, 2017
This summer Fabrica and Project Art Works present IN COLOUR, a new interactive light installation by UK artist Peter Hudson at Fabrica, Brighton.
This site-specific work has been created in collaboration with people with complex needs, resulting in an immersive piece that invites audiences to interact with it and each other, non-verbally. The work has been developed to appeal to people who are highly sensitive to their environments and to sensory stimuli. As such the work is accessible and inclusive exploring themes of communication and consciousness and how environment affects behaviour.
Peter Hudson is an artist who has previously shown work at the at Wellcome Collection, London, which ran for a year from 2014-2015; Being Undetectable, an outdoor, enterable black rubber-clad 2.5m cube, shown at the Royal College of Art, London 2016; and Open It, an interactive video installation, shown as Artist-in-Residence at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London 2017.
Project Art Works have supported Hudson develop the work through close interaction with neurodiverse artists and makers at our studios in Hastings.
“The absence of visibility and relevance in cultural content reflects the marginalization of certain communities in society. This unique commission seeks to involve people as makers and collaborators in ways that address cultural and attitudinal barriers to diversity in mainstream culture”. Kate Adams, Director Project Art Works
IN COLOUR is supported by an Explore and Test grant, Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
