This autumn Fabrica will be premiering Care(less), an immersive virtual reality experience by Lindsay Seers. In this 360° film work, Seers explores the hallucinatory effect of VR. We are drawn into a state of the aged: a state in which we can quickly become invisible.

About

The artwork and exhibition programme is a response to groundbreaking research being undertaken by University of Brighton, University of Birmingham and University of Lincolnshire that looks at the experiences of older people receiving care which they pay for themselves. Early research findings indicate that care provision can feel precarious for many of those who receive it and that a sense of powerlessness, bewilderment and difficulty in dealing with uncertainty is common. Also, society’s view of old age shapes the manner in which care is given, received and paid for and ultimately the value placed on care relationships.

Lindsay Seers is best known for the hundreds of images she has produced using her own body as a camera and her video installations. These explore complex ideas and situations through elliptical narratives that are shaped by an evolving set of connections and coincidences that the act of making the work evokes.

The artwork and its accompanying texts and programme of talks, film screenings and activities investigate prevalent attitudes to ageing, the nature of care relationships and ways in which the social care system meets care needs.
