Dare to close your eyes and look at the details that make up the whole. Hidden under glass, the works contain a memory of colour that is as present as the ghostly pain of an amputated limb. Except that nothing hurts.
Seeing is a sense of distance, colour and depth, an understanding of size and shape, and an understanding of light, material and symmetry at a glance. But is seeing the most important sense of making or experiencing art?
The artists in the exhibition are hearing-impaired and deafblind professionals and long-time practitioners of various art techniques from Tampere. Some of the works in the exhibition are visual, and others are tactile.
The exhibition is organised by the Finnish Association of the Deafblind.
