Leon D. and Tamadher return to Malja with “taste”!
On Saturday, Leon D and Tamadher’s “Taste” curated exhibition will debut at Malja - a Red Bull Space.
This exhibition is a collection of experiments by a group of artists in an effort to try “synesthesising” through art. It is a result of a long-term workshop that began in the opening week of Malja Bahrain, and artists continued to develop each idea individually.
Synesthesia; a neurological phenomenon that literally means "joined perception”, which happens when one sense is perceived exactly at the same time as another.
People who experience synesthesia can see colours when they hear music, or can taste a flavour when they read books, for example. Not all people experience synesthesia, only a rare number across the world!
Unified under the notion of “identity”, each artist chose to transform an object into another sense other than the obvious sense perceived from it. The aim is to push boundaries of imagination and to allow brains to wander and experiment without expectations.
After all, experiments can give us a glimpse of magic!
