poster for Natsumi Wada “Tacit Creole”

This event has ended.

This exhibition brings together three works that have been produced in collaboration with individuals who take a variety of different approaches to perception. Based on the unique perceptions and memories of each collaborator, the works presented explore the possibility of constructing the world from scratch through different experimental actions.
A maze of sound and tactile experiences, “altag” is a work that can be experienced only through touch and the auditory. Meanwhile, “An image of” uses three experimental videos on the theme of memory and imagination to express things that are hard to communicate through language, as if tracing them by hand. Finally, “Signed” is a work that invites a highly personal viewer experience, whereby the individual movement of a hand in front of the device generates a unique narrative.
As Michael Polanyi demonstrates with his concept of “tacit knowing,” there are areas of knowledge that cannot be taught or learned simply through language. In this exhibition an attempt is made to open up the world by reworking how people’s individual worlds can be understood, and how they can connect with others’ experiences. Furthermore, through these works the aim is to explore the possibility of extracting tacit knowledge and making it Creole - a new mother tongue to be shared by the community.
