For the past 1.5 years, CCCD Touch Art Space has held three themed exhibitions. And now finally, it comes to the fourth exhibition. This exhibition differs from the other three because of its extraordinary artworks created by the group of participants from our public Touch Art Workshops. This Touch Art Workshop was designated for visually impaired persons and was not exclusive to art beginners so that we all could enjoy the pleasure of creating art together.
These artworks are not only the result of their hard work but also represent their creative expressions of making art with different materials such as gaffer tapes, mud, recycled paper pulp, etc. All these creative artworks showcase the emotions of the participants and open pathways to explore the way that they hear, touch and taste this world.
In this virtualizing society, objects are all digitized into various light spots on the screen, we, therefore, lose our sense of reality. We rely a lot on the visual information we receive, and thus, vision dominates our perception and the way of observing objects. But this way of seeing creates a huge gap between humans and objects. We no longer feel with our touch, leaving us with a narrow perspective. In this exhibition, let us change the way of seeing, we are going to feel the texture of different materials with our hands and reinterpret objects from a different perspective. CCCD hopes that this exhibition can bring you a new experience and perspective, and all visitors can get closer to the rawness of the arts.
