Event Summary

Enter into Olafur Eliasson's immersive installation at Fabrica, and explore the twisting pathways of a fairytale forest
Explore the twisting pathways of a fairytale forest that sprang up in the imagination of the internationally renowned Danish–Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. This evocation of a forest taking over the gallery spaces of Fabrica is a fully immersive installation that enfolds viewers in the sights, scents and textures of a wood in winter.

A trail entices visitors into a dense thicket of branches, boughs and saplings, locally and sustainably sourced from Stanmer Park and Foxwood Forestry near Lewes. And, as in so many fairytales, a fork in the path hints of peril or happy endings. Which way will you choose?

Olafur Eliasson has transformed some of the world’s most iconic spaces with his large-scale installations and stunning visuals, including Tate Modern, where his The Weather Project memorably inhabited the vast Turbine Hall. His beguiling and engaging work harnesses illusion and enchantment, and this Brighton Festival collaboration with Fabrica promises a stimulating experience for all ages and abilities.

Tue 18 May–Sun 20 Jun, 11–6pm (closed Mon except Bank Holidays)
