Touching Matter — Dóra Léhy

by Dóra Léhy

You are invited to touch, hold, caress, press, feel the different softness and temperatures of the Touching Tools, exploring the potential of a touch-forward culture by bringing tactile awareness in our relations with the material world and ultimately with each other and leaving different sensory memory in the hand engaging with them.


Dóra Léhy, graduated from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.Her narratives unfold personal accounts, curious observations of social dynamics and human behaviour embedded in the material world. She seeks broadened potential of matter through her material research embracing its sometimes overlooked inherent characteristics.Her work offers gentle encounters with matter through utopian imagination and intimacy.

This project is realized as part of “The Body is a Movement”, a project by Onomatopee and Baltan Laboratories.
During Design Week Public Program, Onomatopee and Baltan Laboratories will present the project with a talk on rethinking the importance of the body (and corporeity) in the contemporary cult of hyper-productivity.

So... is this getting serious?
