Kate McIntosh


In Many Hands



How do we learn new things about the world? How does our perception change? What do our senses teach us? Most of Kate McIntosh’s pieces these past years involved the audience on various levels and repeatedly and charmingly invited them to take the course of the evening into their own hands. In her new piece In Many Hands, McIntosh continues her interest in playful cooperation with the audience. She invites them to explore, touch, smell and listen in a series of sensory situations that allow everyone attending to experiment with materials and experience physical phenomena for themselves. Between laboratory, interactive exhibition and sensual world of experience, In Many Hands provides the audience with a unique space to follow the path of own curiosity and experience the concept of “learning by doing” with their own hands.
