Finding artists works which involve the encounter and a sense of altered authorship. Perception = Awareness
I (as in ego) and Other (as in Context) – the philosophies of Levinas and Kenaan.
I am really looking forward to seeing this exhibition in London next month. It seems the whole exhibition plays to the idea of I and Other, which is the context of philosophies I will use to frame my projects next year.
The Tate says “Eliasson puts experience at the centre of his art. He hopes that as you encounter it, you become more aware of your senses”.
“You add meaning to the works as you bring your associations and memories to these experiences”
and… “You might also become more aware of the people around you with whom you form a temporary community”
