With FAT FACTS Angie Hiesl + Roland Kaiser continue their project series on an artistic exploration of body concepts, diversity and acceptance. FAT FACTS focuses on the aesthetics of abundance.

Obesity is a global mass phenomenon of our time which is often characterised by stigmatisation, exclusion and emotional pressure. In a world that is increasingly occupied with optimization and perfection, more and more people seem to not fit into those ideals. Overweight people have increasingly become a pawn in the hands of public, economic and individual interests and constraints.

In FAT FACTS, overweight people question aspects of excess with a positive XXXL attitude towards life.

FAT FACTS explores a wide range of possibilities between delight and frustration, and creates interplay between the sensuality of being overweight and voluminous physicality in a public urban setting.

FAT FACTS is a walk-in installation featuring individual activities that create moments of irritation in the viewer’s everyday life.

The performers’ personal experiences as well as an exploration of social concepts of standard and excess are part of this performative work.

FAT FACTS approaches the topic of being overweight in manifold ways: Sensuous ... humorous ... tragic ... poetic ... whimsical.
