Hands Made


In Hands Made, the visitors’ own hands take center-stage. Separated from the rest of the body, yet in intimate proximity to each other, they will be the focal point of a speculation on the past and future of hands, of handwork, and of the sense of touch. What have these hands been busy with and what will they do in the future? Who or what will they touch?
