A I S T I T / coming to our senses is a series of exhibitions and performances exploring the complexity and wonder of our sensorial perceptions and how they shape us as humans (in Finnish aistit means senses). A I S T I T unfolds in five chapters from March 2021 to mid-2022 in Paris, London, Berlin, Helsinki and Ghent. Newly commissioned artworks, as well as existing works, will be shown in each city by artists whose practices are grounded in the sensory.
The third chapter of A I S T I T – Resonant bodies – takes place in Berlin and comes forth from an ethical urgency. The global pandemic has exposed the already critical condition of interdependencies among bodies, human and nonhuman. We are attached to others, constituted by those attachments, and vulnerable to their loss. The exhibition at KINDL consists of video and sound pieces presented in a sequence. The spatial dramaturgy and the rhythm aim to immerse the viewer into the experience and address their bodies as containers for empathy, grief, loneliness and intensity.
