Go there, I don't Know Where
Bring Something, I Don't Know What
The privileging of a particular sense in the elaboration of a metaphysics is a well-known theme, and the sense that has been most privileged in Western thought has been ‘sight’. More broadly, there is a ‘hierarchy of the senses’ in classical, medieval, and early modern periods, which extols certain senses over others and sometimes promotes deliberate avoidance of sensory experience.
Practicing beyond the cinematic apparatus and inspired by the structure of a camera obscura, the year-long research of the COOP group Curating Positions: Logics of Montage investigates the denial of the image as a way of allowing other senses, perspectives, and feelings to arise. The final project takes the form of a durational performance manifested into different acts in addition to a satellite event in collaboration with the Cineteca Sarda.
