16 June – 02 September 2018 

Firstsite, Colchester, is delighted to present A New Life in Frigg, an exhibition by the artist and graphic designer Scott King. In the show King invites visitors to the fictional town of Frigg, which is based on the former Butlins holiday camp at Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. It is part of the artist's ongoing Butlins-inspired series Britlin's - a combination of the words 'Britain' and 'Butlins' - that plays with the power of collective nostalgia to reimagine a new society modeled on an idealised vision of the past.
