‘This Spring explore the twisting pathways of a fairy-tale forest that sprang up in the imagination of the internationally renowned Danish–Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. This landmark work will be one of Fabrica’s most immersive and memorable exhibitions to date, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary year. Presented in partnership with Brighton Festival, the exhibition will run from 18 May to 20 June 2021.
The Forked Forest Path at Fabrica will take the visitor on a journey through the gallery space, interacting with the natural world. Led by a trail that entices visitors into a dense thicket you will be immersed in an installation filled with branches, saplings and thinning’s, combined with a strong, earthy smell reminiscent of a forest floor that enfolds viewers in the sights, scents and textures of a wood in winter.
The Forked Forest Path is part of the Towner Collection on loan to Fabrica from Towner Eastbourne. It has previously been exhibited at Towner (twice) at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester and at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York.’
