This film was featured in "Please Touch" exhibition. "Please Touch" is an interactive performance introducing a new concept to sculpture. Nadine Abou Zaki sculpted blindfolded in the dark, focusing on the inner self, thereby substituting the sense of sight with that of touch. She questions the role of image as a contemporary tool, the physical act of touching in artistic creation, and the relation of this tactile experience to memory. What is sculpting without a body? Communicating without body? Desiring without body? She invited people to touch, experience and interact in the dark with her sculptures. What if you have to touch to see?

The interactive sculptural performance was in collaboration with:
Zeid Hamdan: Touch-screen design
Alaa Minawi: Artistic lighting
Lisa Chehade: Living sculpture
Bshara Atallah: Textile recreation

Curator: Agial Art Gallery
Exhibition Dates: November 2014
Venue: Station Beirut- Lebanon
