Fabrica and Outside In present Strange Relations by Carys Reilly and Simon Le Boggit. Fabrica’s autumn exhibition will be exploring extremity and diversity, inviting audiences to experience work of an extremely large scale and of a tiny intimate size.

The juxtaposition of the artists’ works will offer visitors a playful ‘sizeshifting’ experience – at first loomed over by one work and then towering over the other. In this highly anticipated exhibition, the artworks position the visitor as the ‘norm’ in the room. This plays with human scale, looking beyond the norms of human experience and questioning the cultural standards in current exhibition making.

Carys Reilly’s series includes psychologically charged sculptures, though tiny, they powerfully convey bodily intimacy and interiority. In contrast, Simon Le Boggit’s expansive video installation, Even Giants Have to Bend, fills Fabrica's 10-metre-high ceiling with the movement and sound of huge trees in a strong wind, immersing the viewers below it. 

Strange Relations attempts to interrogate ‘norms’ within the contemporary art world and society, through exhibition making - a subject that both Outside In and Fabrica have each explored for some time. This focus set the parameters for the selection of the artists’ works which are two extremely different immersive encounters.
