Different Weathers of my Body

Magda Fabianczyk

Magda was hosted by ISIS who support individuals affected by substance misuse. She worked with their staff and service users to consider their everyday conflict. Beginning in the centre’s waiting area, later making journeys to Hampstead Heath and Brighton, and working offsite in galleries, editing rooms and cafes, they translated recovery experiences into performance, video, sound and movement. The final public work was a three screen video installation. The sensual imagery re-presented the brutality of recovery and extended an understanding of difference.

Magda was commissioned in 2013 for A Million Minutes in partnership with Islington Council with funding from Arts Council England.
