With In Many Hands Kate McIntosh dives into the tactile and the multi-sensory, inviting the audience to test, touch, listen, search and sniff.
This project steps away from the stage bringing the audience into a series of aesthetic sensory situations, and inviting them to experiment with materials and encounter physical phenomena themselves. In Many Hands is part laboratory, part safari, part sensotopia – as it unfolds, visitors take their time to engage and explore as they wish, following their noses and curiosities. As always, Kate’s work is guided by her ongoing fascinations with the misuse of objects, playfulness with the audience and an off-beat humour.
Kate McIntosh has an ongoing curiosity to bodily involve an audience, and to imagine a social space where individuals might explore their own agency as well as a communality. In Many Hands wades further into these experiences.
