reminiSCENT


  • May Space 409b George Street Waterloo, NSW, 2017 Australia (map)

reminiSCENT surveys contemporary artists initiating multisensory experiences through olfactory encounters. Smelling is classified as a “bodily sense” in that along with touch and taste, in order to be ‘known’ or perceived, they need to be experienced with the body. Scent receptors are located in the olfactory cortex, a zone of the brain that overlaps with the limbic system, the area responsible for some memories and emotion. As a result, scents are often linked to memories and form associations that are highly individualised and subjective. The artworks in this exhibition privilege the sense of smell over that of vision and emphasise language and memory as understood through bodily engagement.
