The exhibition “A Few Haptic Possibilities” explores how touch, sensuality, and empathy manifest through intuitive material process. The phrase “Haptic Possibilities” refers to the transformative potential for knowing the world in a bodily way; a psychological and radical embodiment.
The site-specific installation playfully engages with the architectural elements of the gallery space, and includes works on paper that Espezel created while in residence in Tartu for the months of April -June.
