Tactual Explorations

North Light Gallery, Huddersfield

30th September – 7th October 2006
Curated by Isil Onol

Tactual Explorations is a not-for-profit public event which includes a ‘tactile exhibition’ based on a selected museum object – the bust of Sophocles held at the British Museum – which is interpreted by 10 artists through physical and virtual tactile artworks.

There will be opportunities to engage with the work through artist talks, workshops and lectures, which are free and open to all, Visitors are encouraged to consider the general concept of tactile exhibitions and to explore the tangilble information behind a visual exhibit.

This was one of the first times I’d considered my work in the context of its tactile and haptic qualities. It was also a good introduction to gallery interpretation and Practice-led PhDs. To see more info about the exhibition and events, click on the Issuu publication below.
