Katalin Kovács: TACTILITY, TOUCH, and senses
– Fragmented thoughts, based on French art theory –

Seeing the unusual exhibition, the question inevitably arises in the visitor: what connects the works of art exhibited here? What is the mysterious binder – thought, idea, concept – along which these works of different materials, of different genres are displayed in one exhibition space? I would like to outline some fragmentary thoughts along the lines of tactile, tactility, materiality – and senses – on the basis of French art theory, which is my narrower field of expertise.

I would start with an etymological remark: in French, the words brushstroke (la touche) and touch (le toucher) are coming from one dagger. Namely when the painter touches the canvas with his brush – or his thumb – or the sculptor the material with his chisel, he comes into some physical contact with the image and the sculpture. In this context, it is worth mentioning the anecdote that Jean-Siméon Chardin, the greatest colorist painter of the 18th century, was rumored to have, – as Diderot writes in his Salon of 1767 – used his thumbs as many times as a brush in his work.

The French verb “toucher”, like the Hungarian word “megérinteni” (to touch in English), has a double meaning, in addition to the specific sense of touch, it is also used in the sense of touch, move. This is not a coincidence at all, as these two activities are intertwined in the aesthetic thinking of the eighteenth century: according to the unanimous opinion of French art critics, a good work of art touches the viewer and not only enchants his eyes, but also touches his soul.

Tactility, however, is also tied to the tradition of depicting the senses. But not in the usual sense, as when the paintings are personified by female figures or animal figures (for example, the spider symbolizes touch and the monkey symbolizes taste), but in a very specific, concrete sense: on the exhibited works the textures and surfaces are almost touchable, powerful dynamics are suggested by the moving – interlocking – spaces.

It is important to emphasize that from all of the senses, the closest to the body – corporeality – not in the longest period of time cherished vision was in art theory, but tactility was. Art theorists have traditionally seen vision as the noblest sense. In contrast to touch, the privileged role of vision means the superiority of painting over sculpture, and of the primacy of color in painting over drawing. There is a paradigm shift in this perception in the eighteenth century: philosophical ideas, including Condillac abbé’s Dissertation on Emotions, which states that our knowledge can be traced primarily to tactile sensations, are also confessed by art theorists of the era that all visual arts based on touch.

In the perception of paintings, vision obviously precedes touch: vision, which shows the distant, and touch, which shows the near, can be seen as opposite to each other in the process of cognition. However, the question arises as to whether we perceive the same thing, perceive the same way from near and from far? When we affiliate the works of art in the exhibition, both sight and touch are essential, presupposing and complementing each other.

However, in the Age of Enlightenment, the question of the lack of the senses was also considered: Diderot, for example, reflected on the aesthetic experience that a blind-born man could have. He says that “sight is a kind of touch”. In this regard, it is worth thinking about the fact that there are similar experiments in contemporary art: if we exclude sight and rely only on touch, how do we perceive works of art, and among them primarily and especially sculptures?

Sculptures evoke the viewer’s desire for tactile experience even more than paintings and photographs. But the role of touch and tactility also arises during the reception of works of art. Diderot alludes in his Salon in 1763, to Chardin’s fruit still life that he wants to bite into the fruits on the picture, squeeze out the bitter orange juice, drink a glass of wine, and dig into the pate with the knife which is hanging from a tablecloth. Looking at the apple cob sculptures of Attila Rajcsók at the 2019 exhibition, I heard from one of the spectators: “Who bit into this cob”? Indeed, the sculptures are so material that they invite the gaze, but at the same time the hand also: the viewer feels the urge to touch the works of art gently.

As a concluding remark, all I would say about the senses – and perception – is that it is no coincidence that aesthetics was born in the age of the Enlightenment as an independent discipline, one of the aims of which is phrased by its eponym Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten that “the science of sensual cognition” this suggests that the “art of thinking beautifully” is based on perception and is related to feelings.

Eszter Miriam Rozslay: Tactility is the source of life

We can divide the human perceptual system into five major units. We got achingly far from the experience of unity. If we have a look at the definitions of the concept of utility, we see that today we mean a part of an integer delimited on the basis of some predetermined criterion: we divide it into utility. Isn’t it crazy?
perception_5. It is obvious that till this time at least 4 meetings had already taken place on the topic of perception. So we still have this tactility, perception 5.

perception 5? Perception 5 is tactility. The 5th???
Thanks to science, now we not only know, but they have proven, that tactility comes first. The first experiences of every human being are tactile, as the touch develops at about the 16th week of pregnancy and it is constantly evolving during our whole life. Touch is essential for physical, cognitive and language abilities, social and emotional development. The skin, as the outer limit of our physical body, is designed to absorb tactile stimuli. Our skin provides us with a wide variety of information about ourselves and our external environment every minute of the day, from the cold of winter, to the heat of the fire, from the uncomfortable chair to the prickly sweater or about the sneaking lurking LEGO double in the dark room.
Tactility is the sense which is always active, never rests. It works even when by our old age all of our other senses are weakened or even lost. A person needs tactile experiences at every stage of his/her life, the touch of

another person. Our reactions to stimuli on our skin, our touch-related and touch-induced emotions determine our quality of life, so touch is not only physical feeling.
Physical contacts and their manifold effects are inevitable in human interactions. Parts of culture; emotional expressions have been created over time, nonverbal elements of communication. They are conspicuous in our language twists such as social contact, warm handshake, approvingly slap somebody on the back, helping hand, healing hug, hot kiss, cruel backlash . Just as the absence of a hug, a kiss, a handshake has an important message also. (This is one of the reasons why “neglect” is now being a reckon among a form of abuse.)

The power of touch, as well as its prominence on the spiritual plane of human life, is evidenced by the fact that touch healings can be found in cave paintings, papyrus scrolls, and in the Bible, Jesus heals patients with the touch of his hands in many cases.
And every human life begins with a touch. It is a fact that sexual habits differ from time to time and culture, and the perception of sexuality is different, but I am absolutely certain that sexual intercourse without touch and contact has not taken place in the last millennials or nowadays. One of the outcomes of the activity is none other than the descendant. For me, this in itself is a compelling enough argument to consider tactility as a source of life.

Zsigmond Móricz wrote, “Who is not being caressed, his soul dries up.” Although the substantive truth of this statement was not scientifically proven until only decades later, it has arguably succeeded in capturing the plane of tactility that I consider as the most important one.
How beautifully this is expressed by our word ‘touch’, which means both physical contact and mental vibration. I don’t think it’s a coincidence…

The quantity and quality of our tactile experiences affect our entire lives; it has an elementary influence on our individual development, our relationship with ourselves and the world, our health, our well-being. Yet touch, especially non-sexual touch, is becoming rarer, and people apparently seeing their lives increasingly bleaker, more burnt out, and they are producing more and more physical and mental illness.

Whether we need to view tactility once as a victim of development, maybe we need to revise our definitions in the future, or just rediscover it, recognize the value of touch, and find a way of life in where our individual needs of tactile experiences are available? I do not know.
However, I see that while our attitudes toward tactility are insanely diverse and, – like everything else – , they are constantly changing, one way or another, we are all involved in the two-way street of touch.

Ádám Kovács: The black hand

Ádám Kovács: The black hand PDF

 

Ádám Kovács: The black hand

The black gloved hand was added by the sculptor Iván Paulikovics many years later to his earlier work, the tough, wise, foolish figure.
Maybe Diogenes is the plaster cast, – his head isn’t even visible -, it’s just something torso-like, his toga is crumpled, his ass is sticking out of it. He stood there with his protruding ass, set aside in the dark dusty warehouse because his creator felt he was not ready yet. Or he was just standing on the sunny white limestone cliff above the sea, bees flying over the flowers of the carob trees and cacti, and among the many thorns cicadas played music, grasshoppers bounced, watching while the seagulls were squawking, he looked down at the sparkling waves, staring in amazement and coveted at the endless sea, a distant foggy island. And this half- finished sage had nothing and no one, no ordinary problems, but he had time to think about everything, to meditate, to philosophize, to marvel at the most important things in the world, to unravel secrets, and to bask in the sun and to do nothing.

He was always happy when the sun was shining, and it was shining quite often in Greece. He ate what was thrown away, or was brought to him, or the fruit he found — he also begged sometimes, it must be admitted — he drank spring water, but when he received wine, he loved to be even happier, he had no other dress just this old toga. He was a model of serenity, but now, from under his toga, his hand in his black glove, which was later fitted, protrudes unsettlingly and ominously, as Ivan put it to him and finished the work that had been left half- finished for years.

No one really knows the prehistory of the hand, what he did before it was put on the statue post factum. Maybe he was wandering in dark alleys as the suffocating choked gloved hand of a murderer, or it squeezed the dagger that Brutus had stabbed Caesar once, or it might have been the hand of a mysterious thief at another age who stole a statue or picture from the gallery which hadn’t turned up ever since.

Something more was needed, the sculptor felt, and then everything has an overcast side, sadness, loneliness, lives in the corner of the stoic smile radiating from the headless torso’s movement.
It is also possible that the hand previously existed only hidden deep in the sculptor’s imagination and then a nightmare came to life, the Covid 2019 epidemic broke out, social distancing, curfews, gallery and restaurant closures, masks and gloves, so Ivan put it on the statue.

When the conqueror Alexander the Great once stood in front of Diogenes to ask about the secret of eternal life, all he told him was to step aside, not to cover the sunlight from me. For the king who wanted to be the god of sun not as powerful and shining in the eyes of the wise as the sun itself.
Maybe the black hand is precisely the admonition with which the philosopher points to Alexander the Great, that in vain all, because soon after, after a short glow, you suddenly smoke out in the dark, the next day the sun rises above your grave in the same way. He could point to us too, let’s go further, let’s not shine so much, let’s not cover the sun, we don’t know.

But it may be that after the sunset starry with the star of dawn, the darkness will be drawn down into the sky by this black hand among the white rocks that turn pink, over the whispering sea, and Diogenes will be amazed again at the infinity as the swan and eagle constellation of the Milky Way slides down on the faintly radiant waterfall.
