Lecture and demonstration



University of Art and Design, School of Art and Media Pori, 18.00

The interdisciplinary research project “Figures of Touch” addresses the relations between the arts, body and society by analysing the transformation of the cultural status of touching. The project deploys epistemic interests of media studies, art research, aesthetics, philosophy, and medical anthropology.

The session „Touch and proprioception“ organized by the project focuses on questions concerning the role of touching in regard to the sense of body posture and movement (proprioception). This theme is approached in form of an introductory lecture „The Senses of Touch“ given by artist-researcher Mika Elo (Taik/Pori) and a demonstration of Feldenkrais movement analysis method. The demonstration is conceived and led by Sibylla Klein (Feldenkrais-practitioner, Helsinki/Bremen).

Dance and performance projects

Pia Karaspuro and Sibylla Klein created in 2014 a project called Inhabiting Spaces – Inhabiting Languages, which studied connections between movement, multilingualism, corporeality and space. Body Poems continues from there in the form of projects I am Here and InHaLe which are offered for immigrant women. These projects include researcher Susanna Hast.

„I have several times tried to think of an apartment in which there would be a useless room, absolutely and intentionally useless. A space without a function. Not “without any precise function” but precisely without any function; not pluri-functional (everyone knows how to do that), but a-functional. How to expel functions, rhythms, habits, how to expel necessity? I imagined myself living in a vast apartment, so vast that I could never remember how many rooms it had (I had known, in the old days, but had forgotten, and knew I was too old now to start again on such complicated enumeration). All the rooms, except one, were used for something. The whole point was to find this last room“.

– Georges Perec: Apartment (exerpts), in Species of Spaces
