My Crazy Family Golf is a participative project made by Lisa Watts and her father, Gordon Watts (referred to as ‘Dad’).
Together they have created a series of crazy golf holes, each including audio recordings of the family made during Dad’s years of caring. The golf course holes also act as playful sculptural objects in their own right, incorporating elements such as domestic carpet and household objects.
Visitors to My Crazy Family Golf will be invited to play five holes of crazy golf, with a handmade golf club and score card to complete. Both fun and poignant, this project inspires visitors to reflect on their own family relationships, the nature of care, and the significance of those personal interactions.
My Crazy Family Golf is accompanied by a personal film, Dad Cares, that documents Dad and daughter as artistic collaborators. The exhibition also includes an essay by Sarah Gorman.
My Crazy Family Golf is a John Hansard Gallery exhibition presented in partnership with Fabrica, Brighton, and supported by research and development funding from Arts Council England.
