Group exhibition

2 May – 1 August 2021

When our eyes touch is the first chapter of AISTIT / coming to our senses, a series of exhibitions organized by the Finnish Institutes of the Benelux, France, Germany, United Kingdom and Ireland, in collaboration with the Maison Louis Carré, in order to explore the complexity of our sensory perceptions and question their ways of shaping us as human beings. The curators Hans Rosenström and Satu Herrala were invited to reflect on the theme of the senses (“aistit” in Finnish) as well as their contemporary physical, political and technological dimensions.

Participating artists: Etel Adnan, Axel Antas, Simone Fattal, Terike Haapoja, Anna Maria Häkkinen, Kapwani Kiwanga, Laurent Millet, Maija Mustonen, Laure Prouvost and Hans Rosenström.

In parallel, the artists Axel Antas, Laurent Millet and Dafna Maimon will be presented at l’Institut finlandais, Paris.
