in a tactile path beyond that aesthetic. The tap becomes a cognitive experience, touching to hear, understand, you touch to know the object, to go beyond the surface and lift the veil of appearances. Touch becomes a way to attempt to grasp the essence of the object and know its secret truth. through these three processes see, look and touch, I'm checking out a task tangible human instintualità linked cognitive know. Whether Hildebrand the artist "tap with eyes" surfaces looking in this opera Elisa Zaldi presents us with a further check which you can't subtract: touch to understand what I see, then tap to see deeper .Conceptually we want to reflect on the difference between seeing and knowing; the first gives us a superficial and immediate consideration, the second needs our attention to be revealed and, in this case, to be touched. If we don't have the will to learn about something, it remains devoid of interest to us; We can understand you, meet you, only if we want to enter into a relationship, in a sort of communion with it; in this case, abandoning himself to explore touch and relying on the artist who becomes the experiential guide. Touching has become increasingly a factor related to the pragmatism of things, distancing himself from the wealth of sensoriality by itself; Elisa Zadi, with this work wants to focus attention to a rediscovery of touch related to the sensitivity of various textures that mimic barks of trees and that the viewer will be led blindfolded to me. What/How I feel without seeing?
The work is presented concealed by a black brocade fabric; through three slots in the spectator, deprived of sight and driven artist, you'll put your hand and feel the various surfaces; only after this tactile experience the participant is asked to write one or more sensations, always seeing no. As I write this without seeing it? Each phrase, written by the participant is immediately recited and attacked behind the scene. Only at the end of the performance, participants will be revealed the briquettes texturate, covered with gold leaf and resonates the epilogue of the performance.
"Watching you Touch your eyes,
Touch you See with your hands.
Because the visible and Tangible are nothing
that mirror of the invisible.
