Where knowing and not knowing touch

Keywords: Contemporary art, art therapy, research, subjective transformation, social engagement

This film was part of an exhibition at a contemporary art gallery [1] in Sydney, Australia, titled ”˜Where knowing and not knowing touch’. It embodies part of an ongoing project that generates a space for researching relationships and questioning binaries – between artist and audience, aesthetics and (inter) subjectivity, the psychic and the social. As a group of artists and art therapists we have worked together for several years on site specific art installations and interactive performances (Linnell, Perry, Pretorius & W estwood, 2005, 2006, 2007; Perry & Westwood, 2007; Westwood, 2008, 2009a, 2009b). We have taught together in the Master of Art Therapy and the former Graduate Diploma in Expressive Therapies at the University of Western Sydney in Australia.
