Event description

Description

Commissioned for the inaugural Inclusive Arts week, Tactile Tour is an art performance and installation by local Perth artist, Elizabeth Bills. The installation consists of four sculptures inside four plinths, which can only be accessed by touch during a guided performance. Influenced by Williem Boshoff’s Blind Alphabet, the artist manipulates the privileged environment of the art gallery.

Traditionally, tactile tours provide access to cultural partipation for visitors with low vision or blindness. In Tactile Tour, all viewers must be led by the guide in order to access the work. The guide leads the viewer from plinth to plinth, reading each Braille didactic aloud, reaching inside the plinth to touch the sculptures and provide a verbal description.

Elizabeth would like to thank Grace King for facilitating the Tactile Tour.
