you feel me??? is a group exhibition concerned with mundane, bodily, sensorial life. As we skirt the Western wet-dream of ‘mind over matter,’ we turn to the knowledge held within and amongst our bodies. We are interested in how affect can be experienced materially and collectively, reigning in parts of ourselves that have been regulated to private, extraneous margins.
Knowing our affective registers are uniquely our own, you feel me??? advocates for description over prescription, exploration rather than assessment. It aims to center embodied knowledge; to build an archive of feelings; to make extraordinary affect ordinary again. By honing in on our sensorial selves, we welcome creative strategies for survival in a world who continually thinks from its neck, up.
