The Sensorial Object will be an exhibition of artworks for which sensory evocation performs a key part of meaning. Its aim will be to bring together new digital technologies with the long established traditions of ceramics, wood, glass and textiles, in order that we might fully explore the sensory capacity of the applied art object, and the ability of materiality to trigger sensory connections from sight, sound, touch, smell and even taste. The exhibits will be based around the domestic object, in order that we might re-visit familiar experiences through our sensory world, to enable fresh discoveries and new apertures of perception within and beneath the every day.
The exhibition will run from 17th January to 8th March 2015. It will be staged at Craft in the Bay in Cardiff, and curated by Dr. Natasha Mayo and Zoe Preece, on behalf of the Makers Guild of Wales.
