These tentacles that are inserted directly into the pulse of our heart, extremities that take us beyond ourselves, the hands that connect us with the most every day and the most cosmic. We invoke hands as an entrance portal, as an intertwining, as exploration, as a question, as an invitation.
In this season 2021-2022, curated by Itxaso Corral Arrieta, we will place our hands into unexpected masses and materials; into intuition and poetry; space, sound and vibration; into the movement of water in our bodies. Joined by several artists who have artistic sensorality at the centre of their research, our hands will take us on an adventure exploring different possibilities of listening and tactile connections.
We will do things with our hands because they do not end at the wrists; they connect with all our tissues, and they reach our feet. These vibrating finger-filled sensors have a lot to tell us about ways in which we can learn together.
Curated and coordinated by Itxaso Corral Arrieta, performative artist, researcher and educator.
