Expression of Sightless

Jessica Sarah Rinland
United Kingdom 2015 / 4’

The latest experimental film from the director of Adeline for Leaves (2013), who is well known to New Horizons audiences, deals with various ways of experiencing art. The protagonist is a blind man who uses his sense of touch to experience the beauty of sculpture. His hands come into contact with Renaissance works and then rub and caress them. For viewers of the film, the situation is completely different. They are unable to feel the sculptures in their hands, but then, they are able to see them. Who really gets to know art in this way?
