touch, colour and fold
With Bernardo José de Souza, ĒTER, Rasa Juškevičiūtė, Ula Sickle
Opening 24 February, from 6 pm to 9 pm
For her takeover of the IN-DESIGN section, graphic designer Goda Budvytytė has decided to unravel the process of bookmaking through both visual and haptic perception. By starting from its primary material—paper—and by synthetically unfolding its constitutive elements in a spatial and performative dimension, touch, colour and biding emerge as intertwined agencies to mutually affect one another.
Goda Budvytytė has always invested much attention in interdisciplinary exchange as well as in the tactile aspects, the embodiment of her creations. For each noun in the exhibition’s title corresponds to a specific component of bookmaking: touch stands for paper; colour for ink; fold for binding.
These aspects are explored alongside practitioners from different fields and backgrounds: choreographer and dancer Ula Sickle—who will lead a series of participation-driven guided sessions in the exhibition space—photographer Rasa Juškevičiūtė and writer and curator Bernardo José de Souza. At the centre stage, an open-ended book-like structure, conceived in collaboration with architecture practice ĒTER, acts as a maelstrom of sorts, an axis around and through which all contributions create an ever-expanding field of sensorial perception.
