by Katrien Oosterlinck

Atelier Tactile Talk invites you into a game. You are guided to enter into a dialogue without words. We explore the social space, the space between us, through a landscape of foam rocks. We look at how we attune ourselves - or not.

Ask a question by positioning a rock in space. Answer with another rock and watch the landscape change. Move the rocks and follow someone else's rhythm.
Take charge and place your body in the landscape.

Atelier Tactile Talk is a visual game, a social choreography to show communication between people in a tangible way, to make it tangible and open to discussion.

Katrien Oosterlinck

Katrien Oosterlinck (1984) designs instructions for games with a specific scenography for encounters between people. The zone is non-verbal, body language is central. Her work reflects on spatial sensitivity: the search for a private and shared place. Her practice is not only about social interaction, but also about creating images through that interaction.
