Getting There
2018
Fabrica, 40 Duke Street, Brighton,East Sussex, BN1 1AG
12 July - 27 August 2018

Getting There is concerned with the making of a journey on one spot. Combining sculptural, performative and philosophical aspects, the work will be constructed, exhibited and deconstructed entirely within a six to seven-week period. It is conceived as a large, rising, pathway that compels the curious visitor to follow it through the exhibition hall and up into the roof area with the promise of touching the ceiling. Visitors will be able to watch its construction for the first three weeks, use it for the next two and see it dismantled in the last week.

Simultaneously purposeful and pointless, Getting There mirrors a common human personal goal: ‘to get somewhere’. Despite the where being abstract, the benefits of achieving it unclear and ultimately the goal rendered futile by death, the endeavor of getting there is commonly understood as a worthy idea. Lathwood’s new work provides a platform for interrogating this idea informally with visitors to the gallery and through a programme of discussions and activities.
