Please Touch (Prière de toucher)

Living Sculptures

An interactive performance with a living sculpture took place in "Please don’t Touch". Hidden under a brown fabric designed by Bshara Atallah, the living sculpture (Lisa Chehade) was moving when touched and transformed into other sculptures.

"Please don't Touch" is an interactive performance introducing a new concept to sculpture. Nadine Abou Zaki sculpted blindfolded in the dark, focusing on the inner self, thereby substituting the sense of sight with that of touch. She questions the role of image as a contemporary tool, the physical act of touching in artistic creation, and the relation of this tactile experience to memory. What is sculpting without a body? Communicating without body? Desiring without body? She invited people to touch, experience and interact in the dark with her sculptures.

The interactive sculptural performance was in collaboration with:

Zeid Hamdan: Touch-sound design 

Alaa Minawi: Artistic lighting

Lisa Chehade: Living sculpture 

Bshara Atallah: Textile recreation 

"Please don't Touch", interactive sculptural performance held on November 2014, Sation Beirut- Lebanon. Curated by Agial Art Gallery.
