Note! Exhibition continues until October 18th! 

In "Cinematic Senses", film is not only shown as an audiovisual art form. The focus of the exhibition is a multifaceted sensorial experience, where borders between media are transgressed.

Aspects of cinema are explored through the materiality of painterly and sculptural practices, as well as by the movement of the visitors through the installations.

The concept of "haptic visuality” as explored by cinema theorist Laura U. Marks describes how the act of watching can still evoke for instance the experience of actual touch or smell. The image becomes an imprint of a real physical event.

The exhibition is curated by Praxis Master's Programme students. Each of the six curators of "Cinematic Senses" has invited one or several artists. The departure point of this group exhibition has been a close dialogue between curators and artists.

NON STOP SENSE - Live art event: Saturday 3rd of September, 1 P.M – 7 P.M

Performance order: Liina Kuittinen (30 min), Anna-Sofia Sysser (30 min), Harriina Räinä (90 min), David Frankovich (180 min) and Light Chi -ryhmä (10 min).
