TOUCH ME - Open Call
Deadline: 15/07/2020 | Published: 12/06/2020 | Veronika Neukirch
TOUCH ME showcases images, gifs and videos of artists TOUCHING and interacting with their artworks. This digital group exhibition gives your object a chance to be performed, animated and presented to demonstrate its haptic values to touch-deprived viewers.
In 2020, the idea of physical touch has become abstract. Let’s keep it socially distanced and outsource our all too human need of touch to the objects we have created.
TOUCH ME showcases images, gifs and videos of artists touching, holding, wearing, playing or posing with their artworks.
Whereas in a standard exhibition setting the artwork stands alone, here it has a chance to be performed, animated and presented while its haptic values are demonstrated. On one hand this will uncover the unique relationship between art object and creator, on the other, show how the artwork was intended to relate to the body. All of which aims to translate tactility into virtual consumables.
Your submission could be anything from an awkward artist portrait with artwork… to a more anonymous finger poking your work.
I dare you to be absurd, silly, parentally protective, stern, inappropriate, disgusting, classy, dry, sexy, robotic… or all of the above!
The exhibition will be held in cyberspace, PV and duration TBC.
