Touching Tangibles
2013-2014
Performance Series

For Touching Tangibles I produced a cotton suit in collaboration with the costume designer Mascha Kovljenic. It works just like the museum gloves used to handle artworks during the installation and dismantling of exhibitions. This cotton suit though covers the entire body, including face, feet and hands. After its production I asked a variety of art institutions if I could hug sculptures in their exhibitions. There have been 30 hugs in eight institutions and collections.
The documentation photographs I show as a one chanel slide show.
