The conversations with Margherita are meant for anyone who has a special interest in how objects and materials are in relation to our bodies and senses, and how these relations create a secondary effect on human behavior. In a society that relies mainly on sight, Margherita Soldati wants to stimulate ‘seeing’ with other senses by creating intimate, personal and interactive relations between her works and the visitors.
During the consult, you sit down with the artist to discuss your work, ideas, and challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas.
About the artist
Margherita has a strong interest in tactility and tactile perception at the intersection of art and healthcare, supported by material research with a focus on the creation of patterns and textures. She is intrigued by how objects and materials stand in relation to our bodies and senses, and how these relations create a secondary effect on human behaviour. In her practice tactility is the medium through which she communicates and in her works, she often explore the tactile perception to create a more intimate and interactive relationship between the space, the work and the visitors.
Part of Margherita's work the Skin is the Extension of the Brain is currently displayed at Mediamatic.
We close the bookings a week before the date of the consults. You can find other dates on our event calendar.
