"Box with hidden artwork was, by the nature of closed box, rather minimalistic. One of the curators insisted on more visual form of the whole exhibition, so we had to start from beginning. Suppose, we still wanted to touch, but respecting the strong will of the one of us (curator, who is a visual artist), we needed to connect it (all this feast of haptic sensations) with looking at, with the sight. It was even interesting, this his position of connecting aesthetic so strongly with sight. Actually, during my five years of Art History education me as well, i was always made to look, to see I never was able to touch.


In discussion we found out that we can go from touching to looking through other senses. Some of them respected by the Western art world, some seen as “secondary” (like smell, taste or touch). Reading Clara Ursitti article for Art & Research, The Phenomenology of Olfactory Perception: An Interview with Clara Ursitti, we discovered that art exhibitions are working mostly with visible, and that path from invisible to visible, step by step could be an interesting review of the art gallery practice.”

THE WHISPERED MESSAGES



The Destroyer of Compasses
Curators
                  .

                
The destroyer of compasses
blown the pressure to be picky,
the academic commitment
forces the audience to make amends for
commotion.
Theory over practice,
supposition over fleshy life.

If i select my codes to be
uneducated,
would I share as well the
knowledge of glory?
If, really, I don’t care to speak in a public
discussion,
why am I screaming?

panul:

“lilac mixed with urine” - smell was getting deep inside to your brain. after opening the doors and immersing into the darkness, where air was heavy and almost thick. You couldn’t move further.

bad smell? what means the “bad smell”, and which is the “good one”? scent inside the small room stayed with you longer. it occupied the throat and nose but mostly mind.

“it smells like:

stem from tomatoes; nursery; grandmas toilet; urine; strong, flower-based perfume; cat pee; horse”. metaphorical descriptions, memories.

women seemed to feel it stronger than man. a small child inside didn’t mind at all.

what is happening here…
