    Event description

    Carclew invites you to the exhibition launch of Touch Starved at Carclew House on Thursday the 3rd of August. Join us for drinks as you explore the interactive artworks and hear a few words from our Emerging Curator, Lia Karabatsos.

    Immerse yourself in Carclew’s main exhibition for 2023 showcasing 13 talented young South Australian Artists. A range of disciplines on display will include interactive sculpture and narrative, video projections and contemporary installations.

    In the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Touch Starved invites visitors to embark on a profound exploration of the human experience, focusing on the reclamation of touch in a post-pandemic world. This timely exhibition serves as a testament to the fundamental need for physical connection and the impact that prolonged isolation has had on our collective psyche. Through a diverse range of artworks from Carclew’s emerging artists, Touch Starved aims to provoke contemplation, empathy, and a renewed appreciation for the power of touch. 

    The exhibition features a thoughtfully curated selection of artworks that engage with themes of longing, vulnerability, and resilience. Each piece provides a unique perspective on the significance of touch, exploring its absence, its rediscovery, and the transformative effects it can have on our well-being. From evocative sculptures that invite tactile exploration to immersive installations that stimulate the senses, Touch Starved encourages visitors to question their own relationship with touch and consider the profound implications it has on our emotional and physical selves. 

    Through this exhibition, we invite viewers to embark on a deeply personal journey of introspection and reconnection. Touch Starved prompts us to contemplate the vital role touch plays in human connection and the profound effects its absence can have on our mental health. As we collectively emerge from a time of isolation and yearning, this exhibition serves as a catalyst for healing, empathy, and a renewed appreciation for the simple yet transformative power of touch.  

    Touch Starved will be on show from 9am-5pm on weekdays until Wednesday, 27th September.
